Zygiella atrica - Female
Marblehead, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA
August 7, 2004
A beauty. Measures 8mm. Web to 18cm. Found near ocean.

Moved from Zygiella.

Great portrait!
What a lovely shot:-) You could do for spiders what that one dude has done for moths (though he scans them). This is not just of scientific value, but high art as well.

High art?
I thought so, until I found out that they wouldn't sell - framed and matted. Thanks for the compliment
