How big was it? The reason I'm asking is because I'm wondering just how close you had to be to get this kind of detail. All the jumping spiders I've met around here have been less than a quarter inch in length. Cute little guys.

Arround here they get about the size of a quarter - leg to leg front to back. Not big at all. The front of the lens is probably 4" to 6" from the subject. They are interesting subjects. They are extremely shy and run for cover at the slightest movement. So I have to stalk them and walk very slowly up to them lest they duck and run for cover.

Well, your jumping spiders are a whole lot bigger than mine. What's funny is that my little guys aren't anywhere near as shy as yours are. I even had one some years ago that lived near my kitchen sink and that I had to constantly chase out of the sink so he wouldn't drown. He'd then perch nearby while I ran water, probably waiting for a chance to dive back in for a fresh drink.
