Salticidae 4 by g3ckko Salticidae 4 by g3ckko
Sorry for the size but I thought, it were the best to see a maximum of details.

This was taken with the EF-S 60mm and a MT-24EX. I'm still figuring the flash out. Any suggestions are welcome.

This is a Marpissa Muscosa. :)

I totally love this but it also gives me the sensation that I'm slightly smaller than it. Can you imagine that, those eyes are cute until you are small and fair game for the jumper lol

If I were that size, I'd probably panic in case I forgot my wide-angle :p As for the immediate death threat, it'd probably not matter what I did. I observed lots of hunting jumpers and I rarely encountered one that missed its target. Stunned

Lol I would feel absolutely defenseless even with a weapon. I feel i have better chance with bear, jumping spiders are super spiders!! They are my favorite spiders and impressive spiders.Waaaah!

Absolutely amazing! I've never seen one of these in the flesh, but I'm told they are only about the size of a small finger nail. In photos like this, knowing they jump, one gets things slightly our of perspective! :lol:

This is actually the largest jumper you can find in Europe. Its body length can be up to 3cm.

Oh and thank you for the comment!
