The mating ritual is special by this spiders. The male takes a 'gift' to the female. As she eats the meal, the male tries to mate. If this fails, the female will eat the male.
Many thanks Marty, your comment is much appreciated! With friendly greetings, Odeveld
Hi Jock, Many thanks for your nice comment!! With friendly greetings, Odeveld
Scary for the Arachnophobic person I am ! Looks like a tarentula, but that's just a photographer's trick as I know this kind of spider, which is, well, for our latitudes, quite big (but of course it has nothing to do with it's south American or Australian fellows). lk.
Indeed Philippe, there is no risk, we are not in South America or Australia! Thanks a lot for your very nice comment! With friendly greetings, Odeveld
I've shot the same fellow in a pond nearby and like yours, my macro makes it look like a tarentula too.
I'm however not sure whether I'll upload it or not (altough the picture is photographically well done) as I wonder how many arachnophobic people may run off scared from my gallery after seeing the "monster" I caught (5 cm wide, legs included in reality).
I will certainly not run away!!
What a fantastic macro shot, Odeveld, well done!
