This little fellow came and kept me company in my office for awhile. It was odd, having a spider look at me. Until I photographed him, I thought the shiny iridescent spots were eyes — but they sheathed his fangs.
He was a jumping spider.
I let him go. (Happily, he never jumped at me.)
Search "jumping spider" among vids and web sites, and you seem some pretty amazing pictures. Check this slo-mo vid, and this amazing National Geographic vid.
Grrr, but doggone it, those pictures REALLY have me missing my old 35mm camera from the 80's. I bought a bunch of lenses, and could take the most amazing, precise, exact close-ups. Maybe I'll scan and post some, sometime. My digital camera just can't do it, among other things. A few months ago, I was tempted by a really expensive digital SLR (Canon?, not sure), that could take attachment lenses and take quick-exposure shots.
I'm being tempted again. Do have that bonus money....
