OCALA JUMPING SPIDER ♀
(Tutelina n. sp. from Ocala National Forest)
Canon EOS 7D | Canon MP-E 65mm 1x-5x MacroPhoto Lens (@ 1.5x Life Size)
3-Image Stack | 1/5 | f/7.1 | ISO 320
Natural Light | Tripod | RRS MacroRail | Remote Switch


This species is (as yet) undescribed by science, but is now being classified under the genus Tutelina. It was discovered in the Ocala National Forest, in central Florida, and I was fortunate enough to be part of the expedition (external link) that documented its discovery.

This is a very small spider (~4mm), with unbelievable iridescence that is quite hard to capture! I have been trying to get a really nice "stack" sequence of it for publication, but so far a 3-stack image (using Adobe CS5) of this highly-active spider is all I have been able to accomplish under natural conditions.

Hope you enjoy :)

Jack

Congrats and nice capture; one of the things about macro photography is that you have a chance to discover new species.

Sweet find! When I look at the shape of this spider I wonder if it has the mating habits of a Peacock JS? The abdomen has me wondering ... cool vids if you haven't seen them linked below about the Peacock JS.

Hey glad everyone liked the story and this dazzling lil jumper :D

Here's another shot (well, stack) I was able to get using a slight amount of flash, where I was able to maintain the "natural light" look pretty well:
