The Peacock Spider

20Dec12

No, this hasn’t turned into a Science and Nature Blog but I couldn’t pass these by.These stunning photos are of the tiny (smaller than a housefly) Peacock Spider and those wildly colorful flaps are used to attract the opposite sex. They also wave their arms to attract attention and Jurgen Otto, through macro photography, has captured these creatures on film. Nature never fails to amaze. Watch the clip to see them in action.    pb

  3. These photographs are amazing! I’ve never thought of spiders as beautiful before, I might just have to change my opinion (as long as I can admire them from a distance)!
