Default Arachnophobia? FZ40/45

Maybe we can start a thread, dealing with pix of spiders?

Here is my first shot, a long-legged cellar spider (Pholcus phalangioides).

I am really be curious about spiders from Down Under and other places outside Germany.

Cheers,

Stefan

It's not an FZ pic but at least it's a spider - an itsy bitsy one - about 1/4 inch long - crawling up my wall.

Thanks Clint, nice shot.

I think, its a male due to the size and shape of the pedipalps.

Do you know the name of this itsy bitsy spider?

Cheers,

Stefan

He was pretty shy - he ran off before I could get his name - there are so many jumping spiders I'm having a hard time ID'ing the species.

Lyn,

really nice shot. I hope to see more spiders from Down Under.
At the moment here in Germany we have -7 C which are not so good conditions to see spiders in nature ;-)

Cheerrs,

Stefan

Thanks Stefan. I don't go looking for spiders generally, they creep me out! This one is a regular in my garden and I even had to trim the lavender and rosemary around her so I didn't disturb her home! Minus 7 degrees, yikes. We have been having temps of 39-40 degrees celcius (the equivalent of 100 degrees farenheit) so would happily swap with you. Lyn

Hi Steffan

I recently posted a series of a white flower spider [Diaea sp] in the close-ups forum. I have an Olympus ultra zoom so don't post in this forum. See http://forums.steves-digicams.com/cl...y-parlour.html.

Cheers

Bernice
