In 2005 I stumbled across Maratus volans in Sydney and after learning that it was suspected to spread out a pair of colourful flaps I started to search for more individuals and started to play around with them. At the time the female was unknown, and nobody had observed the male’s courtship behaviour, let alone photographed or filmed it. In 2008 I photographed their display for the first time, and this sparked a passion that sustains me to this day, resulting in numerous photographs, film clips, newly discovered species and publications in which they were named and documented. For more on my work visit my website peacockspider.org , it contains links to everything else (facebook, flickr, YouTube, Vimeo, publications, news articles)
