This is the first time I've photograph a Tmarus Spider of the Thomisidae family. And one of my earliest successful attempt on photographing a spider's eyes. A crab spider that I have never seen elsewhere, this is the first time I have seen this species. It wasn't moving the slightest bit when I spotted it so I took the advantage to put my camera near for close-up photography. It should have realized my presence but it did not make the slightest move to escape. >>>Map accuracy : 400m diameter.
