[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The jumping spider family (Salticidae) contains over 600 described genera and more than 5800 described species, making it the largest family of spiders with about 13% of all species. Jumping spiders have some of the best vision among arthropods and use it in courtship, hunting, and navigation. Although they normally move unobtrusively and fairly slowly, most species are capable of very agile jumps, notably when hunting, but sometimes in response to sudden threats or crossing long gaps. Both their book lungs and tracheal system are well-developed, and they use both systems (bimodal breathing). Jumping spiders are generally recognized by their eye pattern. All jumping spiders have four pairs of eyes, with the anterior median pair being particularly large.

Hi Ram,another very common specie of your gallery,but this time caught from above in a very nice way,the sharpness on the eyes is fantastic,well done! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hi Ram,

A very good shot of this little jumper, great focus on the eyes and a nice dof allows you to see most of the spider in focus (thats the trouble with macro lens). Colours are good and natural.
Well taken.

Regards Bill

Hello Sir,

A super macro with wonderful details, sharpness and natural color. The eyes have infused so much life and has literally transformed the picture to a different level.

Thanks for sharing.

Warm Regards,

Hello Ram

Amazing macro jumping spider, very fine POV and the way it is framed diagonally
in the image (with the background wall) it gives dynamism to the image,
great focus, sharpness. details, and contrast, TFS
