Day 32 - Project 365 - Is that really a spider?

Day 32 of Project 365

Jumping Spider - Simaetha sp. (not confirmed yet)

We went to Endau Rompin National Park (Behind the scene footage and more) just last month for two days and one thing which I desperately wished was to see a Tarantula in the wild. you see, I have been photographing the unseen world for last 4 years and I am out in the jungle every Friday night but  I am yet to see/encounter a fully grown or juvenile tarantula. It has happened that my friends have found / seen one when I am not there and we call it the Tarantula Jinx which I have on me and I was hoping and quite positive that I will break the jinx on this trip and (yes you guessed it right) I didn't see one. Damn (pulling hair)!!!

But we ended the trip with a very beautiful jumping spider which JUMPED (yes jumped) on Faiz hand (we call him spider whisperer anyway) while crossing a jungle stream. It was very tiny measuring at 2-3mm only.
