It seems we lack a place to show off our hairy-legged friends, and I know some people love them. How about sharing them here?? I'm particularly fond of jumping spiders, so here's a couple to start with that I photographed no more than a few feet from the kitchen door - both with an S120 loaded with achromats

Saitis barbipes, a European cousin of the famous Peacock spider - 3mm or so

Here are a couple. The black spider was prowling around a white oak tree trunk.

This gold colored one was found in a tallgrass prairie. About the size of his garden spider cousin.

Great thread. Fascinating insects, some deadly, but beautiful (if you don't mind spiders ie  :p)

Zoropsis spinimana - a large ground spider from Europe that has made it to the UK in small numbers. Here in western France it is one of the commonest 'large' spiders in the garden and inside old buildings and my chicken shed. They're a fascinating and beautiful species. This young lady below had recently moulted - the old skin can be seen behind her to the right.

Top photo is wonderful, probably because of the colours, but I'm dying to know what species it is???
