Jumping Spider in Belize

A photo of a little jumping spider I found in our kitchen when we lived in Belize. I really love these little spiders.

Four Spot Orb Weaver Spider – Araneus Quadratus

Thanks to my Dad for spotting this beautiful spider this morning. Couldn’t get too close because it was on the roof. After some research I think this might be an Araneus Quadratus or four spot orb weaver. Anyone have any idea if I am right? I don’t really see the four spots on the back but maybe  its just the angle of the photo.

Spiders…

While I have been living in St Lucia I have only taken I think one photo of a spider, very sad, but when I lived in Jamaica I was lucky enough to take many photos of spiders. Here is one of the them.

The below photo isn’t just a picture of a patch of grass, if you look very closely you can see the little guy sitting in the middle of the picture. I think its an anole or maybe a gecko, there are quite a few of them around, and they are very little. I have watched them eating the ants in the grass. Not sure if this is an adult or if this is as big as they get.
