When you hear the word “cute,” “spider” is probably not the first word that pops into your head. But photographer Thomas Shahan is out to change all that with his incredible macro photographs of doe-eyed jumping spiders. When you know that some spiders can look this cute – are they really all that scary? A world without spiders would be a world with far more mosquitoes and flies, which carry countless diseases.

Even if you have arachnophobia, don’t be too quick to skip this post yet! Jumping spiders have got to be the cutest spiders of all. More than that, they were recently photographed wearing tiny water droplets as their hats, and that way completely denying their image of being threatening and scary. Uda Dennie, 33-year-old photographer from Batam Island, Indonesia, photographs these little fellows in his own garden.
People often ask, who is the most beautiful spider in the world?
You are lucky, because I know the answer – it’s the Jumping Spider! (a.k.a Salticidae) I have to admit, I’m being a bit subjective here, because there haven’t been any spider beauty contests yet.
This little spider disprove the stereotype about spiders being ugly and scary (anyone with arachnophobia here?)
