Sexy Eyes

Straight up; creepy-crawlies creep me out. Photography however mends said creepiness with a charm and respect for ecology. …Nope, still scared.

Salticidae [Jumping Spider] is a true hunter among the spider family. Instead of building a web and sitting on it, these spiders hunt actively relying on their exceptional vision. Such highly developed visual sense and fantastic eye arrangement play a significant role, when females choose males.

Not to be outdone, the males, too, have very colourful displays and well-ritualized mating techniques, as you can see on the following pictures:
