hi Folks, here is another Jumping spider , this time looking over the flowers of an American silvery berry bush. I found it interesting to learn that spiders have no muscles to move their legs , and that they travel along using hydraulic pressure to make their legs work , the jumping spider is able to increase the fluid pressure of its legs by around 50X in able to make its leaps. back in 2000 the university of Alberta estimated around 30 varieties of jumping spider in Alberta , with only 20 percent of them described. I guess in this area there is a low interest in spiders , I am often confounded trying to find a specific name for these eight legged critters...
thanks for having a look
