Mama jumping spider and her clutch of eggs
« on: August 22, 2017, 11:40:01 AM »
Found a female jumping spider with her clutch of eggs inside of a garden faucet handle. Surprisingly (or maybe not) aggressive.

Be sure to check them out on Flickr/Instagram. I'm not fond of how the images look when scaled. It's like some sharpening de-mask happens or something.

Fantastic set of photos. Are these stacked or not?  The DOF is wonderful in the pictures with the egg sac.
