Hyllus semicupreus (female)

Hyllus semicupreus

Description:

Fearless jumping spider. Very inquisitive. Hunts all kinds of other spiders. Had even seen it hunt and kill a Portia fimbriata, one of the most successful hunters of other spiders. About 10mm dia. In the second photo she is with her prey, another spider, and in the third one she is seen emerging from her nest among leaves.

Habitat:

Shrubs and bushes.

Thank you Tina for your comment.. So glad to hear that you like my jumper photos.. The reflection in the eyes are brought out by the diffuser over my camera mounted flash.

That is just perfect Sunny! I really like the reflection in the eyes, it does not look like an ordinary flash. I bow for your jumper photos. Outstanding is an understatement!
