Green jumper spider eggs

in Feb 16 2011 found this protective jumper and the eggs below a nice mount of silk that at same time help with defence and allow the mother to walk above the eggs without any harm.

All photos with Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 macro @ 1.5x magnification. 580 EX II flash bracket mounted.

At this angle the eggs are almost absent from the image but it illustrate how she is capable to walk above the silk without damaging them. 

This angle is the best one to avoid the silk web and capture the eggs

  1. Great shots. I really like the eyes of the spider, they are so interesting.
