Euophrys frontalis

The spider below to the left is a very small jumping spider, which you will probably encounter clearing out some old leaves, or when your garden has lots of trees in them, for it mainly lives in forests. It is very small (less than 5 mm) and it is at the edge of what our camera can do. The female is far more colourful than the male. In the picture a juvenile male.

In the picture you can clearly see the spider's last pair of eyes. This pair is situated way back on the head and the eyes look backwards. This way the spider can observe its entire surroundings. For hunting only the two big eyes in the front of the head are used. This is true for all jumping spiders.
