You seem to be very fond of jumping spiders.
That is true. I will say, the jumping spiders I encounter are often on man-made structures like railings and brick walls and windows, which provide sturdy surfaces to brace myself and my camera; so apart from their natural beauty and wonder they are easy quarry compared to many other arthropods. And as far as arthropod photographers go, I’m fairly unoriginal in that I’m a sucker for the big eyes.
