[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Jumping Spiders are generally very small in size. I shot this one in September last year when it came out of the cracked plaster of a wall and moved about in quick jerks, eyeing me suspiciously with those staring eyes. Though I took many pictures in frontal perspective to capture those eyes, I also took a few profile shots of it and this is one of them.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Ram
Beautiful macro of this sp[der, nice composition, sharpness is quite good, the front legs are OOF. A higher f should be better.

Hello Ram,
I really like this angle as it gives us a great look at the entire body. I too normally shoot a frontal perspective, as you say, it is hard to ignore those awesome eyes. Wonderful focus displaying excellent detail. The diagonal composition looks great.

Hello Ram,
This really is a spectacular composition with such impressive spider.
Excellent capture.
