Salticus Jumper Spider

in Amazing Nature6 months ago

Here, I share some macro images with the #AmazingNature community.

A jumper spider leaps and ambushes a fly. My hypothesis is that this spider belongs to the Salticus genus.




The spider has a black abdomen with white bands that mimic a zebra but it was quite agile and aggressive, so I was unable to capture the abdomen. Between the eyes, the face has orange bands, and the jaw and a pair of pedipalps are covered with white hair.





How long can a spider consume its prey before leaving no trace? In my opinion, it should just take a few minutes with such a small prey item.

All of the images here are my own work, taken with Xiaomi POCO NFC smartphone and an assembled external macro lens.


How on earth did you manage to time the pictures so well? This is unreal. Timing it just in time, as the spider leaped into action.

On top the precise timing and angles, the details just outshine every other aspect. Hard to believe that this was all taken on a phone, that too, a budget phone. I guess a good macro lens can really enhance the photography experience and capability of a phone, and I used to think that these lenses were just a gimmick.

I really need to get some tips and tricks from you, I myself am trying to master the skill of mobile photography. Guess I have a long way to go, and I need to get my hands on one of those macro lenses too haha.
