1/2 inch (body length)
My sister-in-law found this beautiful jumping
spider sitting on her
clothes basket near her washer and drier in their
garage. She saved it for me since I was coming down to St.
George, Utah to visit the next day. This was a large, very
active female spider that was willing to have its picture taken.
Is that a cute spider face or what? It even has
white, partial eye rings that just cut into the top black mouth
When I went to release it in the yard, it rattled around the dish
like a rock when I was trying to get it to slide out. That was
Phidippus. I was so proud of my sister-in-law for not killing it. What
a waste that would have
been. © Carol Davis, 10-5-2009
