I have to admit this right up front: I’ve got a weakness for the salticidae (Jumping Spiders) in general. Aside from the fact I think they have the most personality of any spider, given that they are visual predators so will “look” at the camera, they are also by far the cutest of spiders.

So cute!

This delightful subject was found under a leaf and was most happy to turn, looking directly into the camera for their photoshoot. They got so excited, that shortly after this photograph it jumped onto the lens and wandered over the camera. Now that’s a genuine love of the camera!
