Look at this jewel here. Absolutely stunning creature to look at. This is one of the most beautiful and colourful spider, found in our surroundings. It belongs to Jumping Spider “Chrysilla” family, probably ‘Chrysilla volupe’?. Not sure, these Spiders are tough to identify and even the experts struggle at times. I found this beauty running around my hibiscus plant last year. I thought of getting him on the hibiscus flower and try getting some good frames. The results is the image below. I absolutely love it. Wish I had Raynox dcr 250 filter by that time, so that I would be able to get more close up shots. Past few days, I am searching for him around my house. Hope I will get one soon. 😊
