I love these spiders, they sit in flowers waiting for some unsuspecting pollinator to drop by.
is it just me or does that spider have 9 eyes?
I see 9 too, but in any case that is a terrific shot. Awesome!
It appears so, but I'm not sure how rare that is?
hmmm... nothing comes up in a google search... so I guess it's pretty darn rare
Notice the additional eye is on the spiders left, indicating its is left....sided.
Glad to be of service.
Lovely shot btw.
No idea what that means but ok
optical illusion..maybe its developed a cataract
i wonder if this spider has switched to this plant (at some point in the evolutionary timeline), from a previous but now extinct species. the host flowers are purple but the spiders are yellow. suggests that the relationship between is not really ancient? do you see these spiders only on these flowers, or other species of flowers also?
Wow, that is just an awesome shot...
Awesome shot. what did you use for lighting and what was your shutter speed?
Lighting was achieved with a homemade shoot with diffusing material and shutter speed was 1/200, the top sync speed of the pop up flash. No fancy flash setup here!
Thanks for the feedback.
