Peacock Spider Gets Down For Love

BuzzFeed: This fascinating video depicts the mating rituals of the Maratus volans or “peacock spider.” Let's just say that this beautiful young male spider has better moves than most human males I've come across.

YouTube Description:

Courtship of a spider that has become known as "Darlington's peacock spider" but has yet to be scientifically named. I have found it during a trip to the Western Australian Stirling Range National Park in September 2011. All spider footage is shot with a Canon 60D SLR and 100mm macro objective.
