My main Spider picture page was my hit leader back in the day.  This is spider page 2, featuring close-up pictures of a tarantula and other spiders. My Spider Webs page is here.  Dig the webby wallpaper!


Tarantula: 10/2007, Davis Mountains, TX.  These are very common in the area, and I've seen several of them walking on the roads.

A Prickly Green Spider (A Green Lynx Spider)

This prickly devil was hanging around my telescope setup at the HAS site 9/2007.  That's a towel underneath. Gil says family Oxyopidae.  Jane and John B. say it's a "Green Lynx, in the genus Peucetia"

Small Green Crab Spider

Jane and John B. say "... a crab spider, maybe Misumenops, but we are leaning toward Misumena."   Notice the interesting design on the back of this spider, as well as the eyes.  Llano, TX, May, 2006.  He took a liking to the cooler top, which made him easier to photograph.

"Banana" Spider - Spinybacked Orbweaver

These little guys are prolific web spinners.  They're smaller than a dime, making their egg pod storage sacks even smaller, and it is very hard to get in focus when these spiders are swinging in the wind.  Thanks to Gil for pointing me in the right direction in identifying this little guy.  Says Gil: ...(It) is definitely one of the orb-weavers, family Araneidae, and (updated) its scientific name is Gasteracantha cancriformis  From my spider book it looks a whole lot like (Linnaeus) -- spinybacked orbweaver

Bonus: Fly!
