Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Jumping Spider

Last week I posted a photo of a little jumping spider I found at work that I took with my point and shoot camera.  I decided that I needed a better shot, so I  scooped the spider into a container, drove it home, and put it in my white box for a quick photo session before taking it back to work and releasing it the next morning.  Here’s one of the photos from my little shoot:

I just love the little tufts of hair coming off the head of this little saltie!  I believe this is a Phidippus female, but I’m not 100% sure.  If anyone can give me more information, I’d love to figure out what this little beauty is with more certainty!

Happy Fourth of July to all you Americans out there!  Hope everyone’s enjoying  it.
