Face of the Day

A new species of Peacock Spider was recently discovered:

A fleck-sized jumping spider resting on a yellow leaf caught the eye of Stuart Harris while on a bushwalk to Boroomba Rocks in Namadgi National Park.

A keen amateur photographer, Mr Harris was experimenting with a new macro lens and liked the contrast between the foliage and the spider’s markings. And, as millions of photographers do in these digital days, he posted the photograph on his Flickr site.

“I though it was an interesting photograph of an unusual spider, and hoped a spider expert might be able to identify it,” he says.
