Jumping spider. Macrophotograph of a male jumping spider (Chrysilla sp.) on a leaf. Jumping spiders, which form the family Salticidae, are visual hunters which creep up to their prey before leap- ing on them from a few centimetres away. As they see in colour many species are brightly coloured, as seen here. Salticidae are the largest spider family, with over 4000 species. Photographed in Sinharaja, Sri Lanka. Magnification unknown.
