Hi all,

I thought it was time that I posted in here again. Here are a few of the best images from my backyard in 2017. Hope you enjoy them :)
(There are lots more on Flickr if you do!)

Cheers,
Stephen


(1) A Green Jumping Spider (Mopsus mormon) with Dolichopodid fly prey:

These are really gorgeous! You say they are from your backyard? May I ask how you found them? Do you just happen to live in an amazing location teeming with awesome little subjects? My backyard seems not to have such wonderful subjects, with two exceptions: 1) I was able to photograph an assassin bug once (the ones that look like they have a wheel on their back) and 2) there are often many large orb spiders.

Thanks for the comment... much appreciated! Yes, they were all in my backyard. Living in the subtropics helps :-) It usually takes a bit of hunting, but at least in the warmer months the backyard is "teeming with awesome little subjects:!

Cheers,
Stephen
