Oh! My God Those Killer Eyes ;>

The jumping spider family (Salticidae) contains more than 500 described genera and over 5,000 species, making it the largest family of spiders with about 13% of all species (Peng et al., 2002). Jumping spiders have good vision and use it for hunting and navigating. They are capable of jumping from place to place, secured by a silk tether. Both their book lungs and the tracheal system are well-developed, as they depend on both systems (bimodal breathing).

Jumping spiders live in a variety of habitats. Tropical forests harbor the most species, but they are also found in temperate forests, scrub lands, deserts, intertidal zones, and even mountains. Euophrys omnisuperstes is a species reported to have been collected at the highest elevation, on the slopes of Mt. Everest (Wanless, 1975).

Jumping spiders are generally recognized by their eye pattern.

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Arthropoda

Hello Haraprasan,
A fine close macro of a Jumping spider taken from a frontal POV to show its remarkable eyes with fine sharpness and you might say eye-contact!
The OOF firey BG of the flower suits it well.
Thanks for sharing this fine image,

Hi HP,
The killer eyes dominate here, love the full face frontal POV.
Good details, color, and use of the ambient light.
Well done,

Hi Haraprasan
POV and colors are great. I also like the elegant white frame. There are some sharpness problems here and it is spoiling the image a little bit

Hi Haraprasan,
Excellent capture of this spider taking cover on a flower; good POV and composition, great shallow DOF, sharp details and bright natural colours.

Namaste Haraprasan,
I love this spider, the eyes are so big and wonderful. I never found such a spider in nature, but I would love to capture it also.
I also like the warm colours of the flower.
Sharpness could be a little better, anyway it's a beautiful post, thanks
