[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The jumping spider family (Salticidae) contains more than 500 described genera and about 5,000 described species, [2] making it the largest family of spiders with about 13% of all species. [3] Jumping spiders have some of the best vision among invertebrates and use it in courtship, hunting, and navigation. Though they normally move quietly and fairly slowly, most species are capable of very agile jumps, notably when hunting, but sometimes in response to sudden threats. Both their book lungs and the tracheal system are well-developed, and they use both systems (bimodal breathing). Jumping spiders are generally recognized by their eye pattern. All jumping spiders have four pairs of eyes with particularly large anterior median eyes.

Hallo Foozi
I can only but agree to everything that Ivan has said as everything in this image is just right and nothing is out of place. I have not yet seen a big jumping spider as this in real life; only in pictures. I too like the old piece of wood as it gives lot of character to the image as a whole. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards.

Thanks a lot for sharing a classic shot, friend....take care....warm regards/Abid

Hello Foozi,
I must admit I was suprised at first to find out that this was a Jumping Spider, because it resembled a Wolf Spider in your thumbnail image. He sure is a hairy little guy who has some very unique looking markings. I never realized that all jumping spiders had four pairs of eyes. Very informative notes. Well done!!
