[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sparassus sp.
the Sparassidae family steal not be explored to the end. because of that I can't tell the sp. of this spider!
In israel we some spiders from this family, maybe 10-15 species.
some species are really big (8-10 cm) and beautiful, they have wonderful patterns!
We found this spider when we pick up a branch from the ground and found below a nest of spider, we open the nest and he was go out!

this is a really interesting
colorful spider you found, rei,
looks like itīs black and white.
too bad the photo is quite noisy
and lacks sharpness.
i did not know there were such nice
spiders in israel.
thanks for showing,
