This little spider had a mask across its eyes and I was suddenly reminded of Pris from Blade Runner. But this spider looks male, so I then thought of Priscilla of the Desert. At least I keep myself amused. Posted by Picasa

I think so!

Great shot, I like the eyes

Thanks! I think the big front eyes make jumping spiders more "human" than the many same-size eyes of other spiders.

Both of those movies are in my top 10 (not sure what the other 8 are though. Nice macro as the eyes engage you. Must say I'm a bit scared of spiders - jumping spiders - now theres a new level of goose bumps!

Thanks, Graeme! These fellows are so tiny and their movements so comical, I haven't had any creep out feelings because of these guys.

You can track these guys even if you don't see them, they leave single strands of thread across very large distances (one meter isn't unusual).

I'll turn you into a spider fan yet!
