Probably a relatively common one but found this jumping spider in my backyard today. Beautiful and pretty large too. I had kept a similar one I named Shelob for over two years. Just thought I would share some pics.

The video needs this sound effect.
If someone wanted to get creative, jumper antics, some wav files and a little sound mixing could create award winning videos. Definitely need the missed shot leap and long drawn out scream.
Then the fade in: 'One two, one two, one two pant pant' as it climbs back up the safety line.
