Photographing arthropods can be quite difficult, specially when trying to get multiple shots without the subject moving. A good way to increase your chances is by photographing them at night, most jumper spiders are not nocturnal so they can be found resting early in The morning before sunrise or right after the blue hour increasing your chances to get good stacks
