[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When walking slowly through the rainforest you encounter many fascinating small creatures, insects and spiders in particular.
Inspecting the lower vegetation, I came across this small spider of the family Salticidae. I had little time to adjust my camera settings but was happy to obtain 2 pictures of the specimen before it vanished.

Rain forest about 20 km east of Kolaka on the west coast of Southeast-Sulawesi (Indonesia).

Beautiful jumping spider...focus is there where its matters and composition is very good so are the colors. tfs.

Hallo Peter,
die Augen der Springspinnen faszinieren mich schon länger und sehen besonders in der Frontale abartig aus. Du hast den Schärfepunkt perfekt gesetzt und auch die Farben sehen sehr natürlich aus. Bin schon gespannt welche Augen mich aus dem nächsten Bild anschauen.
Viele Grüße,

well focused image with beautiful POV and good color
