[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Jumping Spider is the resident in one of my house washrooms. I see it occasionally out of its hiding place among taps and it always disappears quickly on noticing me. However, a few days ago, I cornered it with my camera mounted with my macro lens and it grudgingly conceded a few shots before disappearing again. Here is one of them.

I am fascinated with these spiders for their eyes. They stare back at you intently, as if wanting to know why the hell you are bothering them, particularly with your fill flash!
Thanks for looking!
