Hi António!
Thank you for the kind words!
I've been away for a while but I'll be back with more new spottings really soon. I've just been really busy, but Noah is a passion and I would never leave! =)

I've always loved nature and photography so it is only natural that nature would be my main photography subject. Specially macros. I love to get really close to the little critters and capture all the details! =)

Thank you Antonio!
See you all soon!

Olá Dangermouse! Sim, acho que tens razão. Obrigado

Stephanie I think you are right.

Thank you both =)

I agree with Dangermouse that it is a crab spider (family: Thomisidae). From the pattern on the dorsum of the abdomen, the dark brown carapace and front legs, I would suggest Synaema globosum.

Olá! Um 'spotter' da minha área! É uma boa foto, possivelmente um 'misumena vatia' ou algo similar. :)

I was trying to get it, but the spider would always move when I came closer to take the picture until finally it moved to a place where I couldn't see it anymore. It was the first and the last time I saw a spider like that =(

Wish I could have seen the entire patterns on the back. Interesting.
