Spider Stare

Arachnophobiacs will want to keep their eyes shut through this one. For the rest, here are some macro photos of a Jumping spider, taken indoors. Jumping spiders are so called as they jump upon their prey from a distance. They attach a thin web wire to the place they jump from, so that they can return to it if needed. They always stalk their prey and never spin webs.  Their four eyes give them a stereoscopic view and also help them to judge distance before taking a jump. This spider’s pose and stare reminds me of “spiderman”!
