Found this little guy whilst moving some plant pots in my garden (Preston, Lancashire, UK). He/she was pretty small, a bit less than 2cm including leg span. I believe he/she is an Anelosimus vittatus. I can’t see too many people wanting to hang this on their wall or send it as a card – but I thought I’d share it anyway.
Captured with Canon EOS 400D, Canon 100mm 2.8macro and Canon 430exII flash. (In the absence of a specialized macro flash I tend to use the 430ex fired into a curved over Rogue Flash bender – it avoids getting lens shadow in the shot and gives a more diffuse light).
