This small, immature (instar) Phidippus jumping spider at Red Butte Garden was playing with the big boys - large
Bumble Bees - and trying to figure out to capture one about six or eight times its size.  © Carol Davis 8-6-2015

little orange jumping spider
I was hoping I'd be able to see it make an attempt but when it turned around it saw
me and ducked underneath the petal. It was a cute little jumper and a species I
hadn't seen in the garden before.  © Carol Davis 8-6-2015
