Default Blue-eyed spider

I've captured quite e few jumping spiders around my house in the past year. But they've all had brown or green eyes; this is a first for me.

LOvely capture !- always assumed the eye colour was from reflection of whatever they were sitting on ?

This one (with the blue eyes) is on a white surface, in a small bathroom with off-white walls, white ceiling, white doors.

The picture below is taken in a similarly colored area (my garage). Although he's on a black piece of material, the countertop reflected in his eyes is white, but his eye color is green. The primary eyes of most jumpers I've seen are a different color than their other sets.

Great pictures! Are you cropping heavily or shooting higher ISO? IF the latter, why?!
