Things have been a bit quiet around here recently. Unfortunately, this has not been because of an amazing bout of productivity. Two weeks ago I broke and dislocated my left humerus when I feel off an obstacle during a ‘mud run.’ Last week’s surgery appears to have been successful, but I stlll have months of recovery and PT ahead. This hasn’t stopped me in my tracks (well, I won’t be running or driving for a while), but progress will be a bit slower. I will still be coming to the Evolution meetings in Raleigh next month, as well as Animal Behavior in August and I did get some curation in over the past weekend.
In the meantime, here are a couple of practice shots of a jumper I took Saturday (single handed with an iPod and a clip-on macro lens). I assume this is either Phiddipus or Paraphiddipus, but what’s going on with the abdomen in the second shot. Looks like it could be a moult, but crawling around on a banister in the open seems like a strange place to be moulting. Any thoughts readers?
