The Itsy Bitsy....

Daring Jumping Spider

Phidippus audax ... because we are a home schooling family and had to find out what the technical name was. Well, actually it was to make sure it wasn't poisonous!!

 We are in Louisiana. Need I say more?! Crazy critters here for sure!!
Dan let him enjoy some sun tanning on the aluminum foil. He is quite creepy when you enlarge the picture. EEEeew!
 But it is kind of neat how he has a little face on his back. His markings give him a very unusual look... kind of like two faces - one from one angle and one from another.
With a little heart for added cuteness!
