Not everything needs to be shot macro. I mean in that getting a close-up of things that are usually too small to see with the naked eye, you get to see what they really look like. And after seeing some things a lot closer than I ever have, if I have to kill anymore spiders, I think I’ll get one of the baseball bats out of the garage.
This is Platycryptus undatus, aka jumping spider of the salticidae family. Very curious, but no dangerous venom.
This is a wolf spider, identified by the arrow-shaped mark on it abdomen. These are very common in Ohio and they are poisonous. They will run if they see you, but will bite if cornered. The bite will not kill you, but there is an anti-venom at the hospital.
A sandfly, or midge, which is extremely common in this area.
