This male jumping spider (Jotus sp?) was hopping about waving it's front legs around trying to attract the attention of a female (who did not seem to be very interested!) :)

This is Bruce Lee, I've had him about a week & finally felt comfortable photographing him. I do baby steps with handling, they start skiddish then end up coming towards you & on you. I only had him out for about 10 minutes. Every time the lens got anywhere near him he jumped onto the front element. Had a hard time getting him back on the rock, he kept jumping back on me. I've had Sheila now about 3 months so time to release her.

LOL. The best way to find one is to not look for one. Every time I'm searching for bugs, they pop up everywhere. If I said I was going looking for a jumper, I'd never find one. There are also places that sale them & the accessories.

This is the only true 2x without a crop. I wanted a 2x face on shot but that's when he'd jump on my lens.

We let Sheila go yesterday & just today while looking for bugs, I found this little cutie. The wife already named her Foxy. 1 is close to 2x then crop. Second was further away so more crop.

A question for you spider experts. Her front pair of arms (?), the one on the right is lacking it's hairs(?). Is this an injury or illness, or a regenerated limb? I was obsessed for the 5 minutes I was trying to take her picture that I didn't notice it until later when I was putting her back in her enclosure. Funny how I noticed it with the naked eye but not at 2x, had to load the images to look close up.

I don't know the cause - could be either, or even congenital, but spiders do not have ears, and use their trigger sensitive hairs on their legs to alert them to movement as far as 3 metres away. Plus they have excellent close vision from those amazing eyes.

I knew they had good eyesight, had no idea about the hair for "hearing", that's cool. I just read that regeneration is possible & limbs get larger with each molt. Will definitely be keeping an eye on it.

Pigpen, I'm not a spider expert, but I have seen something like this before, but on the legs that had me puzzled for quite some time. I finally came to the conclusion that, When the spider molts, it splits open on the back, and the new tender creature wiggles out of it's old shell /exuvia, it then has a short period of time to blow itself up to the next new larger size. If one of the legs or in your case, the old skin on the palps breaks loose from the torso at the joint, it may stay on holding that appendage back from growing. Although in your shot, it looks to me that maybe it has finally shed after the rest, but I'm just guessing, so don't take it to the bank! ha

Thank you. I've had around 15 jumpers over the past years & this is the first I've seen this.

Yesterday was a spider day. Every time I turned around, there was another one. This little zebra jumper was on a quart rock in my flower garden yesterday. Brought the rock to the kitchen table & fired off a dozen shots, then put it back in the garden. I never keep the real small jumpers, more difficult to feed & their survival is more important than having another pet. I thought of adding the tubes but she was already too difficult to handle. This is 2x with a big crop. Tiny little guy.

And this is Lucy. Will let one go & keep her for a couple of weeks, never keep more than 2. I'm sure you'll see more of her once I let her settle in. Right around 2x if I remember correctly.
