Studio stack: Pachygnatha clercki ♂, Tetragnathidae

Size: 6 mm (inlcuding chelicerae)


Posting this studio stacked image taken in early 2012 to celebrate that my book "Bugs Up Close" is now available in English from Amazon and elsewhere: and

This little spider was found in the winter while searching for hibernating bugs (two years ago). I shot it in the field as documented in this video clip from the occasion: I brought the specimen with me for ID. It was preserved in the freezer for a few months.


Stacked from 301 images in Zerene Stacker. Canon 5DmkII, Nikon PB-6 bellows, Mitutoyo M Plan Apo 10/0,28, morfanon tube lens.
