Young Paraphidippus aurantius Jumping Spider

    Newer Older

    Basically full frame once again. Missed the focus a little bit, but it's the best photo I could get of this spider. I apologize about all the photos taken on this painted white railing, but it's often the only location I can photograph at this magnification.

    I've been finding lots of young jumping spiders lately. I wish I could find more adults of all these different species. Regardless I'm happy there is such a wide variety of different species.

    This is the second time I have photographed this species. The colorings and markings are great.

    Not positive, but I think it's a female.

      FABULOUS capture ... what macro lens are you using? I have a 100 mm f/2.8 but haven't learned yet how to get that kind of detail out of it!

      Love your work! do you know most of the IDs of these spiders, or are you using a guide? I'm just starting to learn about arachnids, and would like to be able to ID better. Thanks!
