Hello friends in TN.

The jumping spider family (Salticidae) contains more than 500 described genera and about 5,000 described species, making it the largest family of spiders with about 13% of all species.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 very large anterior median eyes.


Thanks for viewing!

Hello Jusni,
Nice photo of this little spider. Good sharpness, details and natural colours. Pleasing frontal view.

Hello Jusni
Interesting species and impressive photo from a very good POV. Good composition, wonderful colours and great sharpness.

A good composition Jusni. Well framed. I must say I am not fond of spiders that jump. This however does not preclude you from grabbing good frames of them.

Hello Jusni,
fine capture of this Spider with good sharpness, beautiful colours and a well chosen frontal POV.
Best wishes,

Hello Jusni,
A very fine macro of this jumping spider. The frontal POV is great and shows its features, including the two large median eyes, with fine sharpness and natural colours in a pleasing composition.
The leaf BG sgives booth a good impression of the size and provides a contrasting BG.
Thanks and best regards,

I missed out this superb close-up macro of a Jumping Spider, Jusni, so here I am -- admiring the set of eyes you have captured with such dexterity.
You deserve congratulations for this fine work!
