TITLE: Fish-eating Spider.
DESCRIPTION: The silvery appearance is due to the image being captured while the subject was submerged. Fine hairs on the spider's carapace trap air, enveloping the animal in a bubble as it drags itself underwater when threatened, or when attacking prey.
CREDITS: Simon Ling.
LOCATION: Mickey Creek Gorge, Carnarvon Gorge.
