Stunning Macro Photos Of Jumping Spiders by Thomas Shahan
Macro photography is and extraordinary form of visual art that helps us capture the beauty of the miniature world lurking right under our noses. One inhabitant of this mystical world, unseen by the naked eye, is the jumping spider, captured in all its cuteness by photographer Thomas Shahan.
These spiders differ from their kin quite significantly. They have the best eyesight among spiders and they have extremely strong hind legs, both of which are perfect for powerful jumps. Although they do produce silk, it is more often used for shelter and for tethering themselves before jumps rather than for web weaving.
Come face-to-face with these cute and inquisitive predators in Shahan’s vibrant photos!
