The balcony observer's 172th report- Olive the beautiful 美女奧莉薇 (Phintella versicolor)

by Tsao T-F August. 28, 2019 155 views
Today, Olive the beautiful with many bright eyes was looking at me. She seemed to be something to say. On the front view, you can see four of her eight eyes, two of which are particularly large in the center and have good eyesight. 今天美女奧莉薇水汪汪眼睛望著我,似乎有話要說?正面可以看到她八個眼睛中的四個,其中中央兩個特別大,視力很好。

It seems that she climbed a big green mountain, but it was just a leaf on my balcony in Taichung, Taiwan.
看起來她攀爬上了一座綠色的高山,其實只是在我陽台的一片立起來葉子。

I like her to tilt her head and reveal herself. 我喜歡她歪頭賣萌的樣子。

To the left or the right? 向左走?向右走?

A jumping spider (Phintella versicolor) dose not net for hunting, but jumps directly to the prey; however,  he / she puts a silk before jumping between leaves, like Mountain climbers use rock nails and ropes to prevent falling. 跳蛛(眼鏡黑條蠅虎)不結網捕食,而是直接跳到獵物身上;但平常在樹葉間跳躍時怕高處摔下危險,預備跳時會先帖上一根絲,就像爬山者用岩釘及繩子防墜落。

Feel funny after jumping? 跳完開心了?

Want to jump to another place? 又想跳別處去?

It was time to say goodbye. She jumped away. Only the silk floated in the wind...
跳走說再見了,只留下在風中飄盪的絲線...

Beautiful series! So challenging to me to capture something so small.

Thank you, Lynn.
I usually like sitting on a small stool and put the little guy on a leaf that is in the height about my shoulders. Then my elbows can be fixed on my lap, so I can follow and shoot the little guy comfortably with no need of a tripod. I think you may like trying this way. Of course, a jumping spider may jump away quickly. So I have many out of focus image images that are not showed here! HA HA!smile
