Excellent capture mate. I would think about putting this handsome little devil in the Thematic Spiders thread. Very well taken.

Mmmm I usually get those two mixed up as I'm not an arachnid expert.

The key things for jumping spiders are the four prominent frontal eyes, which help them hunt for prey - jumping spiders don't capture prey by setting webs, as many other spiders do, but actively hunt.

Nice shot EM.

I fixed the title for you. It now says Jumping instead of Lynx.
