[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Jumping spiders are small to medium in size, stout-bodied and short-legged, with a distinctive eye pattern. The body is rather hairy (pubescent) and frequently brightly colored or iridescent. Some species are antlike in appearance. The jumping spiders forage for their prey in the daytime. They approach prey slowly and, when a short distance away, make a sudden leap onto the unfortunate animal. They are good jumpers and can leap many times their own body length.

Hi my friend Paul,
I realy wish to see this spider any day - wow, the eyes are amazing.
You made a fantastic close-up, I love the glance in the eyes so much - and so many hairs ...
Thanks, very good shot,
