Borobudur Jumping Spiders

I haven’t captivated/delighted/enchanted/thrilled/terrified you with jumping spider photos recently! We haven’t seen many since New Zealand, but Borobudur turned out to have several. They were going about their business, but I managed to enlist a few for photoshoots.

This little spider on one of the bas-reliefs stopped for only a moment before hopping away.

Likewise, this jumping spider on an educational sign showed little interest in me or the camera.

This little spider stuck around for a while and loved the camera.

Here s/he is again…

And off, saying goodbye. Judging from the abdomen shape, I’d guess this was a female.

Again, I got little interest here. “Scram! I’m eating lunch.” I managed to get only one good shot before s/he backed away into a corner.

 

And remember, spiders are friends, not foot-stomping material. They’ll thank you by eating all of those flies and mosquitos that *bug* you so much. (HAHAHA…I regret nothing.)
