Thanks Jaime
actually jumping spider is lovely pet, because they are cute and friendly. Jumping spiders are also very intelligent, and can interact with you in a way other spiders don't.

yes, this pic taken at home in Egypt. But you can find jumping spider everywhere - just not notice because of relatively small size, typically less than 1 cm. Look carefully at your garden, may be they are there - don't kill. Check at youtube, lot of information how to take care this critter.

Interesting! I generally don’t kill spiders unless they are crawling on me, and just as a reaction. I recall soaking in a huge bathtub at a nice hotel 15 years ago. I had my eyes closed, and all of a sudden felt something on my chest. A spider had come down from the ceiling... Scared me.

There are of course lethal spiders but most spiders just want to stay out of harms' way. Quite often I found large huntsman spiders in the house back in Australia. I usually caught them using a clear plastic container by slapping it over them on the wall or wherever and then sliding a piece of cardboard between the wall and the container. I would then release them outside. Hated it when slapping the wall I would occasionally cut off a leg. Consoled somewhat knowing spiders can regrow legs.

Getting into my car one day, about to go for a jog, and found a huntsman inside the area of the control pedals. I opened the car door and tried to evict the spider by flicking my hand towards the door. It latched onto my finger. I wasn't sure if a huntsman had venom so rather than keel over while running I checked at the local hospital. I was told the huntsman doesn't have venom but some people can have an allergic reaction to the bite. I stayed for about half an hour but had no adverse reaction. What did impress me was that the bite drew blood.

Great pics! You've certainly got a good eye. Must have one heck of a close up lens too?

Thanks.
For macro, I rely on Oly M.Zuiko 60mm and sometime with diopter. Same set up I use for underwater macro.
