Not much spiders today. Did not see the Heavy Jumper as I did in the past weeks nor the ant mimicking spiders. But saw a small JS, a pair of mating leafhoppers, one tiny white insect, and a extremely skittish male banded pintella jumping spider, and in its nest!

Appreciate any comments!

FZ10+6T+Sigma CU, Ext bounce flash, ISO 50, F/8, various speeds

#1: Little JS
1/200s


#2:Mating leafhoppers
1/800s


#3: Sometimes it open its wings
1/640s


#4: Another fella looking on in Background
1/640s


#5: Small white insect
1/640s


This is the evasive male banded Pintella......very hard to take.....so not so good pics...but just to share...

#6 On a leaf


#7: In its nest

I agree - the one in the nest is a great capture.

Thanks fellas for your comments! Appreciate them!

Actually the spider in nest shot was abit OOF on the eyes...hence I mention it was a not so nice pic. But thought it was interesting as I had never seen one in a nest before!

It might be a little OOF (out of focus, right?) but the situation / expression make up for it. It looks as if the spider felt "privacy impaired", and was bothered about it. It seems to have a mouth going
