[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The second image in the series of this jumping spider.

Some info from wikipedia:

The jumping spider family (Salticidae) contains more than 500 described genera and over 5,000 species, making it the largest family of spiders with about 13% of all species (Peng et al., 2002). Jumping spiders have good vision and use it for hunting and navigating. They are capable of jumping from place to place, secured by a silk tether. Both their book lungs and the tracheal system are well-developed, as they depend on both systems (bimodal breathing).

bonjour shir
sensationnel le contact avec les yeux.
la netteté est bonne sur la tête,les couleurs bonnes.le BG bien flou.

Hello Shir
Very intersting shot of this Jumping Spider,
Great focusing, lighting and composition,
In this case,you could go for darker aperture
to have more depth, Welldone.

Good Luck

Hello Shir, thanks.
I like this one as much as the previous one.
Although pose in the previous one was nicer I like the way one does look right in to all the spiders eyes very much.
Sharpness, DOF and exposure are excellent again and the details and contrast between de spider and the green tones of the leaf are beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards,

P/S Brightness, clarity and harsh sunlight in wintertime in Alaska are responsible for the fact that one con use one more stop than normally and due to that it was possible to use F11 and 1/1600th

Hello Shir,
Cute little spider. I love these spiders and you have photographed this one well. The eyes really draw in the view. A good photo,

Very nice shot (again).
Good macro and details.

Hi Shir,
Due to its jumpy nature I have found the Salticids incredibly difficult to photograph. And they are small as well. You have done an excellent job with this one.
