Eeek!I'd run for miles if I had a spider near me!Lovely shot, love the perfect details!
Great close-up! Jumping spiders are my favourite family of spiders, these are so cute! ;>
Fantastic details and DOF. Nothing to add.
If you agree I would like to add this picture to
the theme on Salticidae of the world :)
By the way, I will ask my friend working on these spiders, maybe he would be able to help with ID :)

Strange thing - your friend has got very flat head :-) But seriously - very good macro of jumping spider. Frontal POV looks great, all eyes are shinning and detailed. Nice frame and composition with not disturbing BG. I like it!

great close up! and great angle, TFS Ori
Let me see if I have this right...You found this "thing" on a friends head? Great. Add some drama why don't you?:-) Keen eyes...both the spiders and yours as well...grasping or even imaging these is tricky. I find myself waiting but in a nervous state by thinking it will hop off any minute. Fine macro for your collection.
This is probably your best macro of a jumping spider yet! My humble compliments!
The details and DOF you managed here are simply exceptional and the full-frontal POV works terrific in adding a bit of drama to this shot :) Technically, a very, very good shot!
On a personal side, i really don know why they make mascara adds with the likes of Penelope Cruz...this would be a much better actor. I mean look at those eyelashes! :))))
Great stuff, mate!
Bravo and TFS
PS: i also took a look at your photo.net account. Wonderful work there, too!

Another WOW! I never thought I would call a spider cute but this one really is. I love the sparkling eyes and eye lashes. Magnificent natural colors and superb details and textures. A perfect pose and background.

Hi OwlMan Joe,
A superb macro shot focused the eyes level of the spider.
Amazing details and great clarity.
I also photograped some spider shots from Cyp and TR but I could not determine their ids:(
Many thanks for sharing this Joe!
Well done! Have a nice weekend!

Amazing shot once again Joe!
Your friend was very lucky to have this cute chap chhose his head as a roost (do spiders roost? .... hmmm, I wonder)
The detail fantastic.
I love those cute little hairs on the top of its head :)
Brilliant work,as usual!
ps ... my latest macro is of something really really teeny!
