Range: World-wide except the Australian region and Antarctica. Habitat: Highly varied and occuring in most any environment with green food. However, a majority of species favor sunny meadowy or marshy environments. A smaller but still large group of species (many of those with more rounded vertically oriented heads) tend to favor semi-arid steppes, where they may even prefer to rest on bare ground in favor of vegetation.
An abstract photograph of a Signature Spider (Argiope Anasuja) diving into the bush. The focus is at the Spinneret i.e the hole from which the spider secretes and spins the web. The Signature Spider is a common inhabitant of garden hedges and shrubbery in my college and can be spotted without much of a strain.
It is a small species with huge shielded femur. Female has “horn” while male has a small “bump” on the head. This species is originally from Goa, India which is a town near the sea with tropical climate. So this species must have been accustomed to high humidity (>70%) and hot weather (30C).
The hatchling of this species is very small; smaller than the size of large fruit flies (D. hydei). However, the little nymphs are capable of handling the smaller fruit flies (D. melanogaster) which is as big as the nymph itself. The hatchling move very fast and are quite jumpy too.
Sapromyza is a genus of small flies of the family Lauxaniidae. One of my toughest shots till date, this little fly is at a max 3 to 4 mm in size and photographing it was just unimaginable. It is then that i really understood the need for a tripod or a monopod
