How to catch a Jumping spider!

Greetings fellow spider enthusiasts! Just a quick post for you today as I happened to stumble across a video that was entirely too good not to share. The video below is a primer on how to catch salticids in the wild.  The video features Dr. Wayne Maddison, one of the world's foremost experts on salticids. Please take a few minutes and watch this highly informative video, as I can virtually guarantee that you will learn something new, I know I did! Also, if you'd prefer to watch it in a new window, just click the link below the video.

Happy spider collecting!

Visiting blog post

Hi guys,

I know I've been super quite of late, and I apologize for that.  However, I do have a guest blog posting over at http://www.wildlensinc.org/blog/ that you should all totally check out!  The blog is run by a good group of conservationists and  I'm sure they would appreciate your taking the time to peruse their work.

Also just FYI, this blog will be quite for a little longer yet as I am finishing up my dissertation and it is eating all of my time currently. Expect a new post around the last week in August (my turn in date), if not sooner!

Happy spidering!
