Cellar Spider (second of two images) - Holocnemus pluchei
Temple City, Los Angeles County, California, USA
July 7, 2013
Size: 1.5" at leg spread shown
I took another picture of this spider without disturbing the animal. The camera white-balance is adjusted to give better picture with the fluorescent and the sun light combination which also has resulted in better manual focus. I rotated the picture 90 degrees to the right (not the spider, it remains happily undisturbed), to show the pattern on the abdomen of the spider in vertical format.
