Hi folks , today I have a second photo of this type of spider , I have been digging since my last upload and am tentatively calling this a wolf spider. there are so many types of spiders that I have not found an exact match yet , I will know if I am to see one carrying an egg sack , this is apparently a characteristic of wolf spiders. the eye configuration seems to be that of the hogna genus which is the largest of the wolf spiders.

problem that I had in the first place trying to find any ID was I was looking for insects instead of arthropods , now I know that I will be finding better ID for these fascinating bugs...

still using my macro lens I found that I could not stop down as far as I would have liked to because the lighting was not that great , next time I will try adjusting exposure compensation to see if I can get a bit more field.

he is very well camouflaged, good cropping to show the whole spider, I don't have a good macro lens so I can't get close to anything, the only thing I don't like is the fuzzy looking object on the right side of the photo, I do like how you placed signature on it to cover it up a little bit

  • Great
