Love in the bushes

I spotted these two spiders in a bush. What I think is going on is the female is on the left and the male is on the right. He was vibrating the strings to get her attention.

Timidly, he got in a little closer…

And this was about as close as he got…

He decided it just wasn’t worth it and left.

Hey Steve,
don't some of the male species get killed off by the females after they have served their useful purpose. Perhaps he thought better of it.

Well he could have died too if she decided :-) So better go away than not get what you want ;-) Beautiful colelction Steve!
