Crab spider [edit]

Ozyptila praticola

This image shows a spider of the species Ozyptila praticola. It's only 0.15 inch (3,9 mm) long. These crab spiders are quite hard to catch, because they hide themself quickly and I had to wait very patiently to be able to take a reasonable image of this animal.

The image is now featured on Crab Spider. -Ravedave 20:13, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Support In focus (execpt the front leg), Subject is centered, clean background. Can you upload an even higher resolution? -Ravedave 20:13, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
    Sorry that this is not possible for me, because the spider is really small (please imagine 0.15 inch), this image is already a 100% crop and has been made using a decent macro lens. -- Aka 20:24, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
    Thats a tiny spider. Also the #3 hit for Ozyptila praticola on google. -Ravedave 00:41, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. Exellent. The resolution isn't great, however this image is otherwise impressive. --Pharaoh Hound 21:03, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. Nice detail. -- bcasterlinetalk 22:13, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. Now kill it already! --BRIAN0918 22:41, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support man, is it scaring.--K.C. Tang 01:59, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support as per above and factoring in the fact that getting all the legs in focus is nearly impossible. Pegasus1138Talk | Contribs | Email ---- 02:54, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support - And man oh man is that thing cute! --Cyde↔Weys 03:15, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. A fascinating and lovely photo, even if a tad on the small size. Do you Aka know anything more that you could use to improve the Crab Spider page the photo is on, as it's pretty light on for information? --jjron 11:30, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support - Good photo! MosheA 15:26, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I love crab spiders and this is a great shot but I don't think it's the best way to illustrate a crab spider. An ideal crab spider picture for me would show one camoflaged against a flower, striking the classic pose like Crab spider on blackeyed susan.jpg or Thomisus labefactus.jpg or . Those photos are nowhere near as good as yours but they do tell the viewer about the crab spiders' best known feature, its webless ambush hunting method ~ VeledanTalk 17:30, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
    You cannot have all at once, and not all crab spiders live camoflaged against flowers ;) -- Aka 18:12, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
    Neutering my vote, fair enough. I'd still love to see one posed like one of the first two examples above, though, but with your picture's quality. Could you possibly try to take one this summer please? ;) ~ VeledanTalk 20:00, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
    You can use rubbing alcohol vapors to put insects to sleep. So capture one of these guys, gas him, put him where you want him and wait for it to wake up :) -Ravedave 21:40, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support - it's more encyclopaedic than the examples given by Veledan, as for once it *isn't* camouflaged, so we can actually see it. :) Stevage 07:49, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Supper, scary. :( --Golbez 15:35, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support - It is excellent resolution considering how small the spider is. HighInBC 21:12, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
