The male Green Jumping Spider (aka) Northern Green Jumping spider has an almost primate like appearance, unlike the distinctive patterns that the female adorns.
These jumping spiders are known as the largest in Australia, I’d say maybe up to 2cm long, and can give a painful (though non-venomous) bite if they need to.
Found in Brisbane, Australia.
Shot with a Canon 7D, 100 f/2.8 L, kenko extension tubes (68mm) and mt24-ex. Processed in Photoshop CS5.
