Obviously I have exaggerated on the title. Today I unexpectedly dropped off at the wrong bus stop, not too far from my abode. I was walking along railings demarcating the road and the drains when I spotted these array of jumping spiders! At that particular spot, there were about 5 species frolicking around, trying to avoid being food by one of their kind. I got too near at times; it was an invite for them to jump into my lens, jeez.
Here’s one that obviously isn’t a spider; a stoic denizen.
Others lurk insidiously.
Mosquitoes have a high propensity to attack me; I was bitten rather viciously while photographing these critters on the railings. Still, I ventured a little closer down the stretch to home.
Not sure if it does moult; it has aged and flaky eyes.
Still, the crimson color is beautiful.
Just to highlight the intricacy of its wings.
I knew I had to take a shot of this.
Something irrelevant and abstract.
Not salient at all.
One of the less reflective ones. Makes for an even lighting.
One thorny bug to cap off the day.
