Nice series Jack, but I like the little Lynx spider, he looks friendlier. :)

Jack,

Are you able to sell your images? I was thinking the are certainly good enough to supplement course material at UF.

Nice job, as usual

Me too Mitch. I was just telling Dr. Edwards that I think the lil' Bark Lynx might be my favorite FL spider ... in the same way the Grizzled Mantid is my fav FL mantid ... as I am a sucker for lichen/wood camo :)

Thank you very much Kim, I appreciate your kind words. I sell calendars mostly, but occasionally fine art images as well. I have not yet ventured into reference text material for the universities. However, I do have a book deal I am working on with Dr. Edwards (Curator of Arachnida & Myriapoda at the Florida State Collection of Arthropods), involving a pictorial encyclopedia for Florida Jumping spiders that we're both real excited about.

Most spider books are either paperback or "field guides," which only have thumbnail-sized photographs, with multiple species per-page. We are working on a much more satisfying book, hardbound & coffee-table-sized, with a full 2-page centerfold display for each species, showing full-sized, artistic shots of each sex ... plus a smaller shot of juveniles ... in addition to the typical range maps, etc. (Our maps will be larger than usual, further delineated by county, and we're also considering highlighting them topographically as well). I also have several spider articles I am working on for various nature magazines ... but, to be honest, have kind of pushed those to the back burner while concentrating on the book.

Whatever free time I have left, I am devoting to making a Macro Image Database Website right now, that I hope when it's up and running will be a valuable resource (not to mention fun to go to :) ).

Hope this answers your questions!

Jack

PS: We (you, BCD01, and I) were all talking about getting together "next season" to take some macro field shots (after winter) ... but, heck, I just went out to Ocala National Forest last Sunday (78 degrees in December!), and caught 30 species of spider [plus a mantid, 2 assassin bugs, and stunning moth, and 3 beetles] ... a fraction of which I put up here. Love warm winters :D ~Cheers!

Great set! You did a wonderful job capturing all the details.

I'd be lying if I didn't say that it freaked me out how well the first and last spider blend in with their environment. :p
