[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have procured a new macro lens: AF-S DX Macro Nikkor 40mm f/2.8.BG. I tried it today on a few subjects including a Jumping Spider. This is my first shot with it and I know I have to learn to use it more effectively. I have yet to revise my equipment profile, so it has not been shown here yet.

Jumping spiders are a group of spiders that constitute the family Salticidae. This family contains roughly 635 described genera and about 6080 described species, making it the largest family of spiders with about 13% of all species. Jumping spiders have some of the best vision among arthropods and use it in courtship, hunting, and navigation. Although they normally move unobtrusively and fairly slowly, most species are capable of very agile jumps, notably when hunting, but sometimes in response to sudden threats or crossing long gaps. Both their book lungs and 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 the anterior median pair being particularly large.

Hi Ram,good result in a difficult situation,a dark species on a clear background gives always some problems about the choice of the best exposure,the pic is very nice and the eyes details are excellent. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
