Jumping spider - Aelurillus v - insignitus (Portrait)

Here is a shot of Aelurillus v - insignitus male jumping spider. I really have been wanting to find the male of this species!!! These jumping spiders are terribly fast. You can find them only on sunny days at sandy places or forest traverses. But there are more females than males. Last summer was lucky with both, females and males...


The difference between female and male jumping spiders is very visible, because males have dark body and v-shaped rows of hairs on its head. Females have grey body color with wide head and different strips on head than male. Males have much more intensive green color eyes than females also.


Jumping spiders are one of the most incredible creatures in the world of arachnids and arthropods. If you like nature and macro world look for these creatures and you will see what they can, how they behave. Jumping spiders have very good sight and can see everything around itself. Also they react to the near movement by moving its head to that place. :) Try to imagine that...


These spiders are about 4–7mm in length.


This is a single image taken at about F11 or F16 with a Pentax 28mm lens reversed on some extension tubes...


Please have a view of full size photo to see better quality (must see):
