Attidops - Attidops youngi - female

Attidops - Attidops youngi - Female
Licking County, Ohio, USA
April 2, 2006
Size: 2.7mm
Found under bark of hickory tree and later photographed in captivity.

At only 1mm wide it was so small I wasn't even sure it was jumper, but dropped her in a container just in case. She took no interest in food or water, and eventually died a week later, probably from old age.

Great shots once again, Jay. I would agree with your assumption of old age. I recently had an audax die that went a few months with no food...only water. She eventually wouldn't drink anything either. She was just over two years old.

Amazing shots once again!
A tiny little jumper, and that eye shot is incredible.

 
Thanks
Thanks Lynette. I do wish I could have done better with this one. I only took a couple dozen photos, hoping to fatten her up a bit before spending any 'quality time' with her. Didn't work out though. :-(


I need to try that eye shot again with some others. Most jumpers won't tolerate having a lens just .75" in front of them!

 
Yeah I figured that one out
a couple years ago. They'll jump right on your lens.
