This looks like the exact same spider as my previous post except the colours are very different. The previous spider had an even light brown colour. This spider seems to be wearing camouflage pants.

The ant in the photo was WAY too small to entice the spider. But I still thought the contrast in size between the two was awesome. David and Goliath of the insect world.

For more information on this nasty looking spider, please see my previous post.


Thanx for the look and please let me know what you think.

Hello Jannie,
I think the spider is an excllent image. The detail is magnificent and the colors are true. You are correct with showing the ant and the spider together, what a contrast of size. How large are these spiders? They look to be about 4 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches tall, am I close?
Great shot...

Very good close up and detail on this spider. I feel sorry for the little ant. Small snack but i guess there plenty more of them where he came from. Then again probably waiting for a bigger meal.....

Nice work, Demetrio

super duper shot..you cant really see the ant in the thumbnail but when it opened up i could see the necessity of the long format..
excellent nature ...which need primarily...be sharp and uncluttered

Je n'ai pas le loisir ces jours-ci d'écrire des commentaires ou des éloges dithyrambiques et panégyriques sur vos travaux.
Et j'ai encore moins le temps pour les traduire dans vote langue maternelle.
Mais je vous prie d'accepter sans ambages le maigrelet icône qu'on me permet de vous octroyer en récompense pour votre travail assidu, source de joies pour mon regard quelques fois ébloui, comme dans ce cas-ci.
Merci Jannie.
