My First Editors Choice!

Hey everyone I just am about to burst with happiness, in checking my profile for sales this morning I scrolled down and nearly fell off my chair -- my favorite macro model, Truman the jumping spider has been selected as an Editors Choice!

This plucky little fellow is out in the flowers every afternoon looking for fly snacks and never seems to mind posing for a few photos.

The fact that many people fear or scorn these tiny creatures is at times disheartening. Therefore, I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the Editor for enjoying this photo and making it my first Editors Choice.

Cheers to all --

Marilyn

Hey Maigi, Great information, thanks! Truman lives in a Marguerite bush (chrysanthemum frutescens) in my garden. His name was given by a friend who viewed his photo and just felt a spider with this much personality required a name I have not seen Truman for a few days -- hopefully he has not become dinner for a bird! :(

You mentioned that Truman, (which is not a true man, but in fact a true spider - Truspider? :)) is a jumping spider. Do you keep it as a pet or does it just live in your backyard?

Great photos! Love your cats. Especially biggest ones. Your spider is cute too. I suspect some of the reviewers are arachnophiles here, one of my EC-s is a lovely Fringed Ornamental Tarantula too. :) Congratulations!
