Eye-to-eyes with Salticus scenicus...

Noticing more of these amazing little spiders on the wall of the house during the hot weather. They come out to try and ambush anything small enough that lands for a rest and with eyes like headlamps, they don't miss much!

They literally have eyes in the back of their head too - what a formidable opponent if your a small insect!
