[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yellow-lined epeus is from the jumping spider family and displays an unusual prowess in springing on their prey and leaping away from danger. Most do not spin webs.

I found this male on a leaf of a travller's palm. The striation in the photo is natural and not caused by pixelation. The photo has also been cropped.

This spider looks like rubber. Like the rubber snakes, frogs and spiders you get to buy at the toy stores. I have never seen a spider with this bright green colour. The eyes and the hairs on the spiders legs are well visible. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi Shirley,
You did a great job in taking this pretty jumping spider. Sharp focus and nice color clarity. POV and composition are great. TFS,

Hi Shirley!
Very interesting, and so green (!) jumping spider! If you argree I will add this photo to "Jumping spiders of the world" theme :)
This is nice photo, but depth of field would be a little better. On the other hand I known that photographing so small and so mobile creatures is not easy :)
Best greetings,

Great portrait of a jumping spider! Amazing how sharp it is. I suppose the size of the spider was very small.
