Ladybugs and Spiders

I'm new here, but I've been lurking for some time. Thought I'd post some recent photos.

For the last couple weeks when the sun comes out, a there are quite a few of these spiders about. I think they're a Lynx spiders and they're tiny (about the size of your pinky finger nail).

As well as this ladybug, who seems to return to the same bush. These shots were taken on different days but I'm pretty sure it's the same bug due to its markings.

All of these were taken with an old 28mm 2.8 reversed with no extensions.

My photostream can be found in my signature.

Welcome and nice shots! Your Lynx Spider looks very similar to our North American Brown Lynx Spider - Oxyopes scalaris. They're very cool little ambush predators... here's a couple images of them from my garden. The first one is a youngster...they get darker as they mature.
