Spiders and Mountain

The southern end of the Torlesse Range at 8.41am

Small Spiders Oxyopes gracilipes
Oxyopes gracilipes  males

There were several of these small (5-6mm) spiders sunning themselves on the alpine strawberry leaves this afternoon.  They were all the same size and shape, but had different markings.  These two interacted briefly, and not in a friendly manner.
