Tetragnathidae or Tetragnatha demissa (Juvenile long jawed spider?)

Truth be told I am actually not a huge spider fan, and I know this blog and my various photo collections would make people think otherwise but I really just take photos of spiders because in certain parts outside they are somewhat in excess. Having said that some of the spiders when you see them up so close are actually quite interesting, and vary so much in terms of their size, shape, and even character to a certain extent.

I decided, after taking some Microscopy photos I would see if I could find something outside to have a look at under the microscope, but in looking I actually found far more spiders and as such decided to have a look for spiders instead armed with my Sigma 150mm Macro lens, and my Nikon D5300.

I used a ring flash, which is why some of the whites are fairly blown out, but the spiders are still interesting in my view.

Because I am not an expert at Arachnid identification, I am only guessing with that these are but I believe this and the one below are Tetragnatha demissa.

From the various web searches, this one appears to be an orb or wheel weaving spider but to be honest, I am stumped at which species it may actually be.

The image above and below look to me like a jumping spider: Helpis minitabunda
