[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As far as I can establish this spider belongs to the family Lycosidae. It is possibly a burrowing wolf spider (?). This one was taken in our living room late night on the 2nd November.

The Lycosidae family ranges between 6mm and 3cm in length and are premarily nocturnal. There habitat is usually rocky or sandy areas or under rotten logs and lawns. The venom is not toxic to humans as they prey on insects. These spiders also don't weave webs.

Face to face, eyes to eyes. Great POV Reinier, spider looks like ready for long jump. Amazing shinny eyes. How big it was?

Reinier, great shot with a very nice composition and pov.

And that's what I'd call eye to eye contact.

Well done.

Hi moemf
I think itīs a lycosidae (in my place we call them just licosa ).
Your composition and capture is great,
As someone sayd, ítīs eye on eye.
Good DOF and POV.
Taba

I like the simetrical front POV on this one. Looks as if it was posing for you. The shot is very descriptive, and the details are very well seen. Thanks for sharing this and the other in your gallery, you have a great variety, I enjoyed looking.
