    Not sure what species this is, anyone?
    I forgot to change the Iso :redface: and hence the noise.
    I should have turned down the Iso and used the flash too, as they say hindsight is 20/20 :tongue:

    Nikon D70s + 'mystery' lens
    Iso 800
    No flash fired
    (Do excuse the underexposure :redface:)
  2. I need a bigger picture.:smile::smile:

  3. Click on the image, Bob!

    I have seen that species myself in SE-Asia. It is very pretty but I have no clue so far what it is.

    Although with that spider and your avatar, you can see why people are confused.
    Nice image-I really like the detail of the thorny things sticking out of his legs. Little things are so interesting when you can see them :)

    These are the marvellous receptor hairs that are linked to the nervous system.

    Thanks Harry.

    There is a reasonable chance that this is it.

    Scientific name: Oxyopes javanus. Thorell
    Common name: Lynx spider

  8. Could be and could not.

    Oxyopes is definitely correct (learned something again :Smart:), but in face of the many dozens of described Oxyopes species I would not dare to name it down to species level.

  9. When you are my age you can be bold-brave and probably WRONG.:biggrin::eek::eek::eek::biggrin:
