Little Brown Jumping Spider with Black Spots

2013 August 14

This little brown jumping spider was running around on one of our window screens on August 18, 2012. I think it’s an immature male. He was scampering around pretty quickly and wasn’t too cooperative about being photographed.

That’s standard fiberglass window screen he’s standing on, with each square being about one-sixteenth of an inch, and his body is only two and a half squares long, so he’s not very big.

This is yet another probably-unidentifiable “little brown job”, doing what jumping spiders do – running around and pouncing on things. There’s not a lot to say about him beyond the things I’ve said about other jumping spiders in general in the past, so I’ll stop here.

    Yes, he is. Even though I have a hard time identifying a lot of jumping spiders, they are so cute I just can’t resist photographing them.

    Can’t resist them either. Loads of personality.
