Wolf Spider on Oak Tree
In reply to manthasfamily, Jan 28, 2013

Thanks to Karen for hosting the thread this week!

Found this spider yesterday evening on a giant oak tree in my backyard, it has excellent camouflage for it's environment.

He's hiding in plain sight...

Not sure if there's algae growing on him or he just looks like this naturally.

Nikon D7000 / Tamron 70-300 VC / Raynox 150

Seven related images. Is that too many in one post? I hope not; but if it is I'll know better next time.

These were captured last August, but I've only just got round to dealing with that day's pictures. I must have used either the Raynox 150 or Canon 500D close-up lens on a 45-175 lens on a Panasonic G3. Unusually for me, I used flash for these.

Is that shot inside the eye, or just a bloodshot exterior?

Have you a picture of the camera, looks like a fun experience.
