Phidippus adumbratus (female)


I'm working on a project to photograph all the amazing Phidippus jumping spiders of North America. This is a species that is not native to the eastern part of the country but fairly common in southern Calfornia. Thanks Laura!!! for allowing me to photograph "Princess Hoppy Leaps". She was one of the most cooperative salticids I have had the pleaseure to photograph :-). Photo © copyright by Patrick Zephyr.
