    Question Spider :)

    I found this spider (actually in the house) and before releasing it back into the garden I thought I would take a few Macro shots on a black porcelain tile I have (the color is the reflection of the sky/garden from outside).
    The photos are not the best for identification, but I am wondering if anyone might have an idea of what family/genus it might fit into?

    The spider was sort of long and narrow(ish), I honestly can't really work it out but wondered if it might be something like a Miturgidae Prowling spider

    Can't help you with ID but the reflections worked well.

    Thanks Closei, I do like my reflective tile for macro work .
    Didn't get the symmetry right but you can't win them all I guess.

    Re: Spider :)

    I posted in a reddit thread for what is this bug, I am told based on the eye arrangement it is likely a variety of wolf spider. Always impressed when they can work that out based on the eyes.
