    Nice pics. You need to come down here to rhe ocala national forest. There are TONS more out here. Then again you can go to the prarie and look too but its not as fun as here especially at night.

    Kris,

    That's where he collected/photographed those spiders. :)
     
  12. I enjoy jumpers just as much as any other guy, but personally, I think that nursery spider is one of the coolest spiders I've ever seen. :p

    Enjoy!

    Jack

    PS: Oh, and to Kris, Joe is partially right: the Magnolia Jumper and the Rosemary Crab were both found in the Ocala National Forest ... though I have Magnolia Greens here too. However every other spider photo was taken of specimens found on my property :)

    I agree!

    And I've got an Ogre-Faced Spider that I caught, that is similarly-neat, that I will try to take some good photos of later today :)

    beautiful pictures, first one is my favourite... been thinking of a trip to Florida for bug photography, sounds very promising!

    Thanks for the kind words & glad you enjoyed the photos :D

    Caught a bunch more today & will post photos later tonight or tomorrow!

    Jack

    PS: Hey Joe! Caught another Ogrefaced Spider today ... any time you want to come out and look, the 50 acres I live on will yield 10-1 in volume in an hour to what Ocala National Forest yielded in a day. It sounds like I am exaggerating, but after you come over I will bet you will agree :cool:
