Fly Nightmare… Jumping Spider

Looking sternly into the camera, these exotic creatures like monsters from a horror movie. But despite their appearance of these creatures are “growth” is not more than 6 cm. The jumping spider family contains more than 500 described genera and about 5,000 described species, making it the largest family of spiders with about 13% of all species.  Jumping spiders have good vision and use it for hunting and navigating. They are capable of jumping from place to place, secured by a silk tether. Both their book lungs and the tracheal system are well-developed, as they depend on both systems bimodal breathing.

These spiders are harmless to humans, which can jump to a height of up to six times greater than their height, can be found in grassy meadows and on the walls of houses on sunny days.

Photographer Thomas Cancer is looking for them throughout England, to capture with macro photography.

As a result we have excellent photos with a wide spectrum in the eyes of the “models”.

28-year-old cancer said that people like his photos. “Usually people are amazed by this Salticidae, asked how I manage to get close so close”

Macro photography is a very interesting thing. It allows you to see the details that do not consider the naked eye, and I love her.

Finding a tiny, Cancer classifies them into his house in London to photograph.

“Normally I find them on the walls near a sunny day, when they try to catch prey.”

They are not so easy to find, but once you see your first Spider-horse, see how he, as a move, you can find other without any problems.

“Some photographers put a spider in the refrigerator, because they are so quiet and easier to photograph”

But the cancer does not do it, so that perfect shot takes a little time and patience. In fact, to take pictures of one of his favorite species – blue-eyed Saitis barbipes, – took three agonizing weeks.

After the photo, Mr. cancer off his “model” at will, where he found them.
