September 3rd – Jumping Spider, Part IV

Jumping Spider

This is my fourth documented encounter with a jumping spider. This curious little feller was found in my garden, pictured here on my wheelie bin.

It wasn’t too happy to be antagonised by my 100mm Canon macro, but he really came up a treat for a hand-held macro photo.

Note the single web filament still attached, something these spiders keep with them as a security blanket if things get a little hairy.
