Betty Boop
I like to call this one "Betty Boop" because of the little eye lashes next to those big eyes, Betty Boop was a cartoon character in the 50s I believe. This is actually a tiny jumping spider smaller than a common house fly. Just after taking this shot with that huge 1 inch thick lens attached to my camera, the spider jumped onto the lens and made me jump as well! :D I hope you are enjoying my work! :)

Oh no! You`re right! It reminds me of Betty Boop! Incredible eyelashes and I love how you have managed to capture six of the eyes. WOW! What a cutie and excellent work!
