Jumping Spider - P.O.T.D 09/09/2014

The jumping spider family has more than 5000 described species which makes it the largest family of spider accounting for 13% of all spiders. They have some of the best vision among arthropods and most species are capable of very agile jumps. 

This photo was taken with the d800e and the 200mm f4 macro lens. The settings were 1/250 sec f/11 and ISO100. I have always enjoyed macro photography because it makes you slow down and appreciate the little things that we so easily miss on a daily basis. You will be amazed with what you can discover when you slow down and actually look closely to the environment around you and appreciate its beauty. I hope you enjoy the photo as much as I enjoy creating this image for you to see.
