Three shots each of male (first) and female, taken at home on May 7th in the gravel pit. Click on images to view full size. PS I think the male will become metallic red when a little older, or perhaps there are two colour forms? Anyway, these spiders were not very large- in the 4-5mm range, but really beautiful just the same :)
A real beauty!
I agree with Stu....[shudder]...... spiders are just not 'my thing' related to a childhood incident.
very nice one
