"Spiders in Focus" Article in the December 2011 Issue of National Geographic Magazine!

    Newer Older

    Well - a year after first contact - I've been featured in National Geographic Magazine.

    This month's issue (Dec. 2011) of National Geographic will include a 3 page spread about my work with Oklahoma's jumping spiders!

    Be forewarned though - apparently there are varying editions of National Geographic for different regions - some run the Photo Journal section I'm published in and some don't. I have no way of knowing which areas receive what, but I have received emails from folks getting my issue from Brazil to England. So fingers crossed your area has it!

    For those of you who would just like to read the article online:

    In other news - I'll be graduating from college here in a few days and it is painfully cold here in Oklahoma. Hopefully I can dig through my archives and pull out a couple unappreciated beauties for you guys during these winter months!

      You are my hero. That issue totally turned me on to Jumping Spiders. I find them to be very friendly and cute.

      Your photographs are breathtaking! I'm very happy that Mother decided to keep these incredible creatures tiny in comparison to man.

      With great respect,
