A collection of spider faces acquired during the last seven years. All these nice eyes belong to spiders in the Salticidae family, or better known as “jumping spiders”. Somehow the reason for such large eyes is obvious from their popular name: in order to get a good measurement of the distance to subject, they need some rather good resolution and thus large lenses 🙂

And my personal favorite, with a 2 mm head width, an individual of the species Mendoza canestrini.
