Also updated the first post but the EXIF registers properly now with a Metabones IV T adapter, so f/2.5 is now registered as f/2.5 and not as f/2.8 with the Commlite adapter.

John, the spider in the first image looks peculiar!  Could you identify it?

Sure, Akira.

It is a female Nursery Web Spider (Pisaurina dubia).

The last spider is a Brown Widow (Latrodectus geometricus).

Thanks, John, for the identification.  The natural design is indeed full of wonder.

Googling "Nursery Web Spider" gave some info in Japanese, but "Pisaurina dubia" didn't.  Apparently this particular one is not to be seen in Japan.  The rectangular outline in her pose depicted splendidly by you looks very attractive and rare to me.

Thanks for sharing!

They are a fascinating genus.

Here is another species I captured in Florida, Pisaurina undulata.

And still another, Pisaurina mira.

I won't post their photos on this thread, as they were taken with a Canon 7D and a different lens (the 180mm f/3.5L), to it is off-topic.

Cheers,

Jack

PS: I am a spider junkie, and am fortunate to have made friends with a top arachnologist, who has helped me with many IDs :)

John, thanks again.  The linked images are equally fascinating, I mean, both your pictures and the spiders!

Really dig the first spider and lizard shots for showing what the APO Lanthar can do, thanks for sharing.

Haven't been using the Voigtlander 125mm much of late, but took it out on a cool day-off hiking San Dimas Canyon.

The Lupines were beautiful, but everything seemed to be hiding ... however I did find a couple of Honey Bees (Apis mellifera) and a couple of Acmon Blues (Plebejus acmon).







Thanks for looking,

Jack
