That spider is actually kind of cute...
Oh my goodness, look at those little green eyes!!! Tell me you didnt kill her, right?!?!! :DOh, FrogQueen is gonna make hubby check all her brushes for the next 6 weeks now, LMAO.
Dawn, Of course I didn't kill her! She is a welcome addition to my shop...just stay off mt paintbrushes! ;-)
actually a very pretty spider...wonder what kind she is.
I was really hoping when I saw that, that is was not real....<>.....Dawn is right. I am going to dump my brushes out before I use them!!!I could not have killed him either. As afraid of spiders that I am, I really kill them, try to move them away from me on a 20 foot stick...or have one of the crew rescue me :DThanks for sharing. That made my day!!Cheers!
Hi there, I am a bit of an aracnophile AND and an aracnophobe (weird huh?) and had to comment on these great pics. That is a jumping spider, a Phidippus audax of the Salticidae family. Tiny, harmless to humans and utterly adorable.Sorry to be a nerdy pedant, but those beautiful iridescent green 'eyes' are actually the mouth area! What a smile eh?
Thanks Simon! I've always called this a jumping spider, but never knew it was the correct name.
