A small but evil-looking spider I came across in the “inlaws” garden in Blacks Beach, near Mackay (Queensland). Nobody I asked seemed to know what type it was. Any suggestions?
These are two separate photographs, but the top one was closely cropped in post-process. One of the weaknesses of my Nikon 18-200mm lens is that the minimal focal distance is 50cm, so both of these pics were taken using a Canon macro filter, which reduces the minimal focal distance by half. I would love a dedicated macro lens, but I can’t really justify the cost. That said I didn’t want to get too close to the spider in case it was poisonous or aggressive!
