Adult Female Jumping Spider - (Phidippus mystaceus)
I've probably posted too many photos of this spider by now, but she was just too beautiful.
I took this photo several months ago now and never bothered to post it as I didn't think it was a "good enough" shot to merit being posted - but now that some time has past, and upon viewing it again, I've changed my mind and see it in a different light.
I still have not yet found an adult male P. mystaceus, but given that I am obviously in the right place, it is just a matter of time, and when I do find one - it will surely be a cause for celebration (for me and you!)
If I remember correctly this photo was full frame at iso 400 on the old Pentax *ist DL and was taken with just the 50mm reversed at f/16 (is that possible? I'm not sure, it's been a while...)
