I am actually kind of arachnofobic, but when I lived in an apartment full with Jumping Spiders a few years ago, I strangely enough didn’t find these little creatures as terrifying as other spiders. And ever since I, several years later, first saw a macrophotography of a Jumping Spider I’ve been wanting to try and take one myself. Little did I know it would happen today, nor it would be feasting on a fly. It seemed to keep “eye-contact” with me the entire time, and didn’t shy from the camera at all.

Not a perfect shot maybe, but I am pretty satisfied with my first try anyway.
