After a night of hunting alligators in Florida my husband found this spider while cleaning out the boat. He was so enamoured of it’s beauty he took this picture, he said it looked like velvet. We don’t have spiders like this (that I know of) in Montana. 🙂 We were watching a show on Africa last night and they showed a Fishing Spider – I immediately recognized it.

This is truly a gorgeous Six Spotted Fishing Spider. We might even include it in a “10 Most Beautiful Spiders Photos” Tag on our site. This is truly a gorgeous photo of this species, but we have another image of this species, Dolomedes triton, where it is walking on the water and making dimples.
