Phidippus Otiosus (adult male)

The Canopy Jumper

Wow!! What a crazy cool jumper!!! I photographed an adult female of this species about a month ago and she was also amazing beautiful!! This was another jumper on the "someday maybe in my life if I'm lucky" list. Thanks again to Don at for providing me with the opportunity to see and photograph one of the coolest jumpers in North America. This species is not native in MA. I believe they might come as far north as NY. Photo © copyright by Patrick Zephyr.
