That background even makes that little fellow cute! Super sharp image.
Great and very cute shot of a jumping spider!
This was another from this series that I liked.

Any third party photos of you when that thing jumped on you???? LOL
They really are interesting up close and personal. I think I like the 2nd one best.
No jumpers dont bother me at all and this little guy jumped onto my lens more than once. Other spiders I cant say the same for. Some really freak me out but never these guys. They are kind cute in a way. Very inquisitive little guys. They almost seem to have personality, I'm not sure I could say that about any other type of spider I have encountered.
I think one difference between jumping spiders and a lot of other insects is that they very apparently "see" more readily and react as well. So they tend to appear to hold more personality in a way we can more readily interpret. They've also got that "huge eyes" thing going on that helps improve their cute factor*.
*Interestingly for humans most "cute" things tend to equate toward more childlike physical properties. Big heads compared to body size; large eyes; etc... That's why you see many "designer cute" dogs which essentially look like oversized puppies
That all makes good sense to me! Hadn't ever really thought of it that way.
Both are very good.
Though I don't like spiders.
Like both of them, but the background in the first image is really nice.
