Luckily this is very easy in Salticidae family. They have very strong sexual dimorphism (colours, shapes ect.). Another thing, characteristic for all spiders, are "bulbi" - larger pedipalps of males.

hey can you help me know what extension rings to get for my Nikon D80? I want to start shooting macro photography again and the filters I have don't fit my Nikon.

For macrophotography the best solution is to buy Kenko extension rings (good quality and costs a piece of that you have to pay for originals).

For landscape photography we use Marumi CPL DHG polarizer and gradual gray photo filter (cheap chineese production not Cokin).
