I decided to take my camera bag to work today. I hit all the back roads on base to hopefully get some interesting nature shots. Didn't find a thing until I got to the entrance to my building. This colorful little spider was sunning itself on the stairs! The photos are pretty large, but this guy was actually only about 1/4 inch, including legs. I'm still trying to ID him. Amy, would you happen to know what species he is?
All were shot with my 60mm macro. I started out at f/5.6 but changed to f/10 to make the most out of the limited depth of field. Shots were between 1/1250 and 1/2000. ISO 400. I played with the color in the first two, just for the fun of it. The color in the third shot is more true to life.
2. I agitated him with a stalk of grass to get him to move. He began trailing a web as he walked.
