| p.1 #1 · Australian Peacock Spider |
Been a while since I last posted. Been really busy.
Anyway, a mate of mine is studying Zoology, in particular the Maratus species of jumping spiders (which are the peacock spiders).
It's been a while since I last got my gear together and started shooting, so I apologise but I am VERY rusty.
They have awesome colours and metallic green eyes. In the presence of a female, the abdomen rises up and spreads out, but unfortunately, we did not have any female jumpers present at the time. Hopefully soon I will be able to capture this behavior.
notice the blue colouring on the hind legs, very interesting.
The following shots are not very good, but I put them here just to show the amazing patterns and detail these spiders have.
Thanks for the view
