Jaak Põder - Jumping spider
Jumping spiders (Salticidae) are my favourite of all ‘bugs’. When I wanted a photo of one for a book couple of years ago, I managed to find only single spider during the summer to photograph — and even that encounter lasted for less than 10 seconds. A year later I met one jumping spider that allowed me to follow her actions for an hour or so. After that I could spot them almost in any place. The key is their body movement — once you know how they move, you have no problem finding one.
