[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last one of this spider, I decided to put this side view as it shows some different angle & details of my jumpy friend.

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).

Another great one in this series Shir.
Again like in the other images of this spider series the sharpness, details and exposure are perfect.
You've done an excellent job and so did the spider posing this wonderfully for you.
Thanks for sharing.
Best regards, Harry

Cześć. Fajne zdjęcie, dobra kompozycja, mogło być troszkę ostrzej. Pająki z tej rodziny ssą bardzo fotogeniczne.
pozdrawiam Robert.
