Especially for Livia

Thanks to Livia @my autofocuslife and Marybeth @espyetta I have now begun to look at the smaller inhabitants of the world as subject matter for pictures as well as leaves, trees and any other thing that catches my eye!
Awesome

@espyetta

I especially thought of you two when I spotted this little fellow on a fallen branch. He was quite happy to pose for me for all of 10 seconds and then he was all business.

You are in a world where the macro insect people are SO good so good luck!

10 whole seconds!? At least my guys like to hang around on their webs and pose.

Love the way he really blends into his background, clever natural camouflage...

LOL I follow both of them and now I also feel like I am being followed by the little critters

Terrific capture

I wonder what kind he is? I like the brown in brown! We're you scared of him? He is a little scary!

@kerristephens Thanks Kerri!
@maggiemae Thanks Maggie!
@jsorensenart Thanks Jake!
@dmariewms Thanks Marie! Yep, he was a busy little spider- no time for the lady with the camera.
@lyno Thanks Lyn! You can see him here, but when he climbed on to the splintered part of the tree, you could not see him!
@httpgeffed Thanks Colleen! I never used to think much of spiders. If they were outside that was fine. Inside, they were goners! Now I look at them twice thinking maybe I should take a picture first!
@peterdegraaff Thanks Peter!
@espyetta Thanks MaryBeth! I didn't have a chance to look it up yet, but the other shot I got of him shows more of the markings on his "back". I'll have to remember to look it up when I have time. No, I wasn't scared of him- he was tiny! But I did think to myself, "If he's a jumper, he's toast!" Because I knew I'd panic and smoosh him off of me! But he was fine. Stood there and looked at me for one shot, backed up while I took another one and then darted to the underside of the branch where apparently he had dinner on the stove.

@summerfield Not really! lol I was actually looking to see if I could get a nice close-up of the wood grain and out popped this little guy. I guess that makes me a bug photographer by default!

Oooh, he is very well camouflaged! Very well spotted, Ann! Looks like he has great markings, they remind me of stone, somehow. Not a jumping spider, I believe, on account of his long legs and small eyes. Awesome shot! 8D

Splendid find, cool capture. He is indeed very well camouflaged.

Very cool looking at this guy.

Lovely shot. Great clarity.

@myautofocuslife So glad you like him! I tried to do my best Livia Spider shot imitation! I was pretty sure he wasn't a jumper but couldn't tell you why! I guess it was the long legs. At any rate, he was fun to shoot and I couldn't wait for you to see him!
@salza Thanks Sally!
@kandernob Thanks Karen!
@ruthmouch Thank you Ruth!
@chrismarfil Thanks Chris!
@geertje Thanks Geertje!
@digitalrn Thanks Rick!
@sangwann Thank you Dione!

Thank you one and all. I've got a big pile of stuff blocking the book shelf where my insect book is. As soon as I get that cleared, I'll try to find out his exact name.

Very nice I like the texture of the wood that blends the spider's stripes :-)
