Jumping Spider
Phidippus audax

jumping spider on a gall
I check out the galls when I'm spider hunting and this one seemed to have something on it. To
my delight, it appeared to be a Phidippus audax. I turned thi
s photo 90 degrees to see the spider
better, but the picture below is actually how the spider was sitting.  © Carol Davis 10-26-2016

I think it liked viewing the world from another angle on Antelope Island. It was
hard getting a good shot with my zoom lens since it was hidden back
a ways in the brush. © Carol Davis 10-26-2016
