This jumping spider had a very short attention span. I had to keep clicking my fingers to keep his attention. This is probably the most dramatic marking I have seen in a jumping spider. He was a really cool guy, and I liked his personality.

    Wonderful affectionate essay, full of unusual and interesting details and curiosity that only someone who is a true spider person, would care to notice. And I love every single picture.

    WOW! Your spider pictures are GREAT! I have always been amazed by spiders, their webs, etc. And you really have brought them to my close attention with your captures. Love all of your pictures--especially the spiders.

    wowwww thats a wonderful photo for such an amazing creature
    i've just read an article about how this spider see things..
    Side eyes - wide angle vision to pick up movement
    Middle front eyes - sharp, telephoto image, some colour vision
    Side front eyes - binocular vision for judging distances.
    ur photo is amazing .:)
