Jumping Spider (Salticidae) by MotherNature

Jumping Spider (Salticidae) by 

Oh, those beautiful eyes and eyelashes! And look at the cute hairdo. Jumping spiders have excellent vision and can jump up to 40 times their body length. They are wandering hunters and depend on these skills to eat – no capture webs for them.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    This youngster (I believe the orange/brown color means it’s a Phiddiups audax teenager) wasn’t shy at all – more curious as to what I was up to. After this shot it jumped onto the lens.
