Those eyes!

This picture was taken in early June. I am always attracted to spiders, and in particular the jumping spiders. Its the eyes! Those incredible eyes. Those two big eyes in the front indicate a more intelligent spider than your average spider. A rather small spider, it makes up by how curious and intelligent it is. When it sees me and my big lens, it looks directly at me, often raising its paws towards me. It seems to recognize me as another intelligent species. Very strange. It also seems to follow my movements.

In this case the spider was hiding in the fold of a leaf. I unfolded the leaf to take the picture.

Canon T2!, Sigma macro lens 150mm, iso 400, f/11, 1/30sec.
