Looking in the eyes of a…

…jumping spider.

This female jumping spider of the genus Aelurillus was found in the Comana Woods in early April.

The following shots were acquired in the same manner as the ones from the previous post, in which the male of this species was photographed.

First, a “wide” shot:
