    Congrats on your feature of this lovely Jumping Spider (you can tell by the eyes among other things) ! They seem to vary between being shy and curious, often jumping on to me or my camera :)

  • Thanks very much Trish. I’ve seen quite a lot of different jumping spiders,some are quite big and it spooked me when I go too near , just in case he jumps on my face! I find the spider eyes fascinating.Wonder what we look like to them?
