[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Basking in the sun, this immature male Pisaura mirabilis (nursery web spider) was easy to capture. He would not budge, not he!
You can tell he is a male by the swollen palps (those feeler-like organs around the mouth) the slim abdomen and, in the case of this species, the rather uniform colour. The black-yellow-black pattern on the thorax is characteristic.

Very nice shot Philippe, one of my favourite spiders. Great catch to get this one on a flower, typical pose of a nursery web spider and good colours. Well done.

Very nice picture. I like composition, sharpness and perfect colors of the shot.

Excellente macro, Philippe. Elles ne sont pas toujours facile à voir, mais ici, c'est parfait. Votre photo me donne envie du printemps, pour retrouver les insectes de ma liste! Très bonne profondeur de champ et cadrage très efficace.

C'est ce qui s'appelle: "s'étaler de tout son long"
Je ne sais pas si cela se dit en Anglais?
Cette araignée a bien raison de se chauffer au soleil. On ferai bien la même chose! Belle photo!
