Metallic coloured jumping spiders are hard to photograph well. For some reason, it tends to confuse the camera’s metering. Moreover, the use of a flash results in a loss of the metallic hues on the spider.
Anyhow, here`s some images of a metallic jumping spider. The metering is all over the place resulting in some ordinary images.
I`m hoping that someone can point me in the direction of a spider expert to identify the vast variety of spiders that lurk around here.
