The Jumping Spider is an amazing little creature.
Capable of jumping 40 times their own body length [which = 220ft for a 5ft 6 person] to catch their prey. The ultimate delicacy craved being mosquitoes engorged with blood which they can spot at quite some distance with their extraordinary eyesight.
Always welcome in my garden & gives thought to those nations effected by malaria where endless lives are lost annually.........
These brilliantly dressed little characters come in many colors & are native in many nations.
