Salticidae or Jumping Spider on a black porcelain tile.

I noticed outside a number of jumping spiders, and having had some success with a black porcelain tile I thought it would be worth another try but with a different spider (last time was a flower spider). There are plenty of jumping spiders outside my house so I safely collected one, put it on the tile and started taking pictures as it wandered around the tile.

The images were taken with a Nikon D5300 digital camera, and a Sigma 150mm Macro. Once I had finished I safely collected the jumping spider and put it back where I found it outside.

Amusingly after I had placed it outside, another spider walked across my desk while I was processing these almost as if to make fun of me.

Overall the photos came out OK, They are a tiny bit noisy and could do with a bit more light but otherwise for another attempt it seems OK.

As I type this the jumping spider walks across my field of view again….. (I do want to clarify, my house is clean and it not a spiders nest for those that think otherwise lol!).

I found this Jumping spider outside, so thought it would be worth trying to get a few photos on my reflective porcelin tile. These are the outcome, the ISO may be been a tad too high thus the noise.
