My first shots of this Peacock spider (Maratus Pavonis) with its legs up.
The first photo shows the male in the first stage of the mating ritual, the next stage is raising of the back, flaring and displaying to the female.

I hate football, but I love spiders.

Well done.

Thanks for the comments guys, I found out today watching them again that the second photo is actually the launch pose just before he jumps :)

Wonderful captures and amazing spider. Excellent work to get it when its doing its pre-mating signalling to a female (I think that is what this is).
