Green Eyed Jumping Spider


Last time I had posted a few shots of a jumping spider. Those were taken indoors. This one though was taken outdoors on a banana tree. The good thing about these spiders is that their first instinct is not to flee. Instead they turn towards you and give you the stare! That makes it easier for me to get some good shots. However, easy is a relative term. I still have to manage the angles and when you are shooting nature, the angles are also hard to manage.


The spider is barely a centimeter in size, although it looks huge here. Below is one shot I would normally delete, but have included because it has the body in view. Just in case a spider expert wishes to identify it!
