Immature Phidippus sp.

Still catching up on editing old shots; this is one of several jumpers I photographed awhile back and released, and just now got around to editing. Definitely an immature Phidippus, possibly P. mystaceous or putnami but hard to say until it's mature. In any case, a beautiful spider and relatively cooperative - especially compared to the Peckhamia sp. and Maevia inclemens photographed and uploaded earlier!

 

Nikkor 60 macro on Kenko ext. tubes, SB-400 and folding diffuser on homemade flash bracket. 3-shot stack in Zerene stacker.
