That is a REALLY good enclosure for a jumper. They tend to really like the vertical containers more than the ones with more ground room. I've been buying some vertical KKs on ebay.
It was an old Pen case, wish i could get a bunch more :?
The bark accidently made a nice crevise between the bark which the female hd under and had 20 plus hatchlings :D





I also just took the mum out a few minutes ago :)

My Jumpers

I took a bunch of new pictures yesterday. Here's the Photobucket and some of the new pictures!

http://s1013.photobucket.com/albums/af255/ZergFront/

Phidippus johnsoni (2 months old?) :? They're starting to get some red on the 5th instars. When they're full grown, most of the abdomen's dorsal side will be red.

4th instar readying a launch (naming this one Baby Face)



5th Instar. You might notice the right front leg is a little more slender. A sibling took it off last instar.



So cute!




Hope you liked! :D

Great pictures guys, especially P. putnami :)
If you know somebody who could send me some Phidippus spp. specimens, let me know ;) :D

Here are the newest pictures taken with my new lens - Takumar 28/2.8. Pentax users have fantastic piece of glass, luckily I can use it as reversed lens :)

I've come across someone on flickr who uses a reversed Pentax, his jumping spider gallery will literally leave you in awe! I've also come across a few macro photography enthusiasts in the UK who seems to have access to Phidippus species.

Yup... I've seen Opo's pictures and this was a reason why I've bought Takumar 28/2.8 lens :D

I'll try to get these spiders in the future, I'm too busy now.

Latest shots of young Salticus scenicus female.

Here are some tropical jumpers. None of these spiders are any larger than 10mm in length; the last one below is no more than 5mm long.

Epeus flavobilineatus, male & female:





Hyllus diardi, immature female:





Hyllus sp., juvenile:



Viciria praemandibularis, mature male:



Unidentified species, possibly Phintella sp.:



Plenty more to come.

Great pictures! Sharp and with lot of detail.

I've seen another pictures of Viciria here:

Very interesting specie.
Thanks! I'm still trying to get them up to your standard though - I've always been a big fan of your macrophotography ;)

Those pictures above are rather old, and a couple of them are grossly oversaturated. Here's something from yesterday:



Plexippus sp., possibly an immature female P. petersi. :)

And oh yes, Viciria are certainly interesting spiders, especially their enlarged chelicerae.

Nice shots, especially Hyllus diardi. I wish we had more colorful jumping spiders in Poland. Most of them have cryptic colors.

Here are few older shots.

Evarcha falcata, adult male


Marpissa muscosa, adult female
