Like the photographer states in the description this is really a spectacualr spider! And of course a spectacular subject can make a spectacular photo when the focus and composition, amount of detail and sharpness were chosen as well as in this one. Thank you for sharing!

*Flails about and jumps up and down excitedly.* I'm so weird! I simply adore jumping spider pictures and this one is no different, with the bright, shiny eyes and the excellent zoom to see the little spines on his legs and the beautiful white fuzz on his head and the lovely green on his legs... Ahhh~~ I could go on and on about the little details here!

I so wish that my camera's macro lens was still manufactured~~~~ It's sooo unfair! *Throw a fit.*

It's just of a spider and I'm not sure how terrified I really am.

Hehe I don't really mind em too much. :aww: I haven't seen this particular species so wasn't sure of the size.
