[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This macro is my Muğla trip seri. This spider belongs to Araneus cf. angulatus Clerck, 1757 which is a Palearctic species of the family ARANEIDAE (ARACHNIDA: ARANEAE) and it rolling its hunt. As I saw, it was a cricket. The spider was preparing it to eat in future. Sedir Island is famous for its beach called as "Cleopatra". The crickets of the genus Poecilimon Fischer, 1853 (ORTHOPTERA: PHANEROPTERIDAE) were very common in grasslands of the island. I already posted one of them previously (see click on genus name).
One of the most important rules in Zoological Nomenclature, binomial nomenclature (naming species) started "Systema Nature" (10th ed.) by Linné [Linnaeus] in 1758. Namely any species name is invalid before 1 January 1758, except for those of several spiders and butterflies, e.g. ones by Clerck (1757).
Have a nice week to all of you.

Hi Ahmet,
very nice macro of this interesting spider.
Those two horns on its back are really unusual!
Great detail and good sharpness.
Excellent DOF from the small aperture.
Good BG too.
Superb notes.
So is the number next to the name the date it was named? :-)

Very fine work!
