    I found a few spiders while shooting damsels the other day. The thin spiders hang out under stems and grass blades. They attack whatever lands on them. (I don't know the name of them) The other two are pretty common. D-200, 300 mm f/4 , PN-11 ext. tube and tripod. Early morning light.

  2. The variety of spiders is amazing. Thanks for sharing these examples.
  3. Very nice Scott.

    The first 2 look like a long jaw spider fo some sort.

  4. Nice ones. I especially like # 3.

    Thanks for sharing
