Hello Lou,
Another amazing spider macro, this time of a red jumping spider taken from an excellent frontal POV to show all its eyes and other features with fine sharpness and lighting. I like the inset dorsal view as well.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

nice close up, it looks like standing on human skin, but perhaps not, TFS Ori
