Jumping Spiders

Jumping spiders are, without question, my favourite spider. I find their "expression", large eyes and ability to turn their heads very intriguing, almost endowing them with personality and character. The photos in this gallery were taken with either the Nikon Coolpix 4500 (its built-in macro is really handy) or the Nikon D70 Digital SLR camera equipped with the necessary lens suited for the task.
