Sometimes the spider is shy of the camera. Not this time:
 “He was so curious about my camera or the reflection on the lens so it was difficult for me to get a still moment. He was trying to jump on my camera but I am pointing it from above, giving him no chance. He desperately waves his arms begging for a hug or kiss that I refused courteously. I tried to approach him from the back, but he has two eyes there too! Chrysilla sp.; probably Chrysilla lauta. Taken at Kadavoor, Kerala, India. Thanks Barbol and Mr & Mrs Apteryx australis for the ID.”- Photo/text: jeevan jose See the rest of Jeevan’s photoshoot here. More jumping spiders: http://eol.org/pages/186
