My first meeting with a Jumping Spider in the sunroom. After seeing various wildlife documentaries and photos of this eight-eyed arachnid, I was surprised to discover just how small this subject actually was–no bigger than three grains of long grain rice placed end-to-end! Photographed on April 4. Jumping Spiders, like most spiders, have eight eyes–one for each leg! See more examples of the WordPress Weekly Photo Closeup Challenge.
Spotted on the inside of the sunroom was this very small and non-jumpy Jumping Spider.
