Redback Spider by intrepidphotos

Up close with an Australian icon. The Redback Spider (Latrodectus hasselti), feared by early settlers, was historically responsible for 12 deaths . An antivenom has been available since 1956, and there have been no deaths directly due to redback bites since its introduction. The female spider, as seen in this shot, is much larger then its male counterpart and has the distinctive red stripe on its abdomen. The female ‘digests’ the male during a successful mating process, which seems to be unique to Latrodectus hasselti. Females reach around 1 cm in size while males are 3-4 mm when mature. Shot was taken with a 100mm macro lens. NSW, Australia

The Iconic Rock of Corona Del Mar 1 by NhtPhm

It’s been awhile since I uploaded a photo of Corona Del Mar! This was taken while ago and I don’t have time to process it. Got some free time today and decided to work on this. I think this iconic rock has been photographed million times by the people who visited this beach. I also want to take one for myself! Hope you like it and thanks for visiting. Have a great day/night everyone! 🙂

Utakleiv by Arild_Heitmann

Utakleiv is a classic Lofoten location. One of those spots that ive shot so many times now, but i still find this particular place interesting. There is always something different going on.

On this day the waves were reaching higher than normal, and i found this perfect rock shelf leading to the iconic Skolmen Mountain in the background.
