Click on the image above to read a fun little story (external link) about discovering a new species of jumping spider along The Apalachian Trial of the Georgia & Tennessee Mountains ...

Lots of fun macro photographs :)

Thanks!

As far as the site goes, no, I am 100% positive it has not yet been classified, as a friend of mine is one of the top arachnologists in the country, and told me this. He is right now in the process of classifying it himself :)

Enjoyable travel blog and good captures, always exciting to find new species (chances in London limited to even smaller bugs like Springtails).
Regarding your home state, how do you rate it for bug hunting in December?

Thanks Denis and Toby.

Regarding bug hunting, that is the cool thing about south Florida, as butterflies and bugs still are out & about, even in the winter :)
