Phidippus regius (adult female)


I have had the opportunity to photograph many Phidippus regius and I'm always amazed at the variety and subtle color differences of the adult females. I've photographed tan, white, black, brown and orange P regius!!! Of all the Phids I would guess that this species has the most variety. Most of the time they are very charismatic too! Always a pleasure to photograph. Photo © copyright by Patrick Zephyr.
