    Photos I call her Suzie Spider, the jolly jumper!

    Another jumping spider, who was very co-operative. Started on the wall, then moved onto a small piece of wood which I held in my fingertips, and allowed me to get as close as I possible could (Venus 60mm at 2:1, and 3 extension tubes). Extremely close focusing is very hard!

    They usually have 8 eyes - 2 very large front eyes to get a clear, colour image and judge distance, and extra side eyes to detect when something is moving. Jumping spiders don't spin webs, they pounce on their prey and inject venom - which makes their two large eyes critical to their survival.
