[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo just after rain. Seems that it is looking for pray. As I observed, it doesn't really have a web build up for catching pray.

I apologies for not be able to name it. Don't worry, I will upload photo of it on other parts of its body for identification to all of TN members.

Hi, I think I never saw a spider face to face. very nice shot. the flash gave it some areas a bit over exposed. Love the point of view. Thanks for sharing. A fine work!

Hi Kean
Very nice little jumper spider you got here. I can not help with the ID, but is seems like you are in control and doing a great job in attempting to find your answer. That is the spirit.
Your composition is good with the diagonal line and so too the cropping. You mention the fact that it was raining so I'm not sure if it is the wetness or if the spider have a lot of white in it, but there seems to be quite a bit of highlights. I see the same effect on the twig, but on that I definitely can see some texture so that is not caused by USM. DOF is slightly soft on detail and exposure as mentioned has the little OE seemingly on the hair and face.
Anyway it was a job very well done and TFS.

Hi Kean,
A nice shot with excellent clarity though a bit over exposed.
Congrats and TFS

Good macro, Kean!!!

Hi Kean,
Cool closeup of this jumper. These are my favorite spiders. Good detail and color.
I'll post one again soon I think. Well done.
