A friendly little jumping spider was hanging out at the back door last week. Sometimes they’re on the blind like this, but they really like the space in between the door and the jamb.

There are thousands of described jumping spiders with no good, quick way to research one from a photo, so I don’t know what we have here other than family Salticidae.

I enjoy having them around. They’re nifty animals. Call me an arachnophile.

  1. They are startling little critters due to the way they move, but also because they can achieve a large size. I prefer them to your namesake, because I’ve walked into so many webs that are strung across my doorways. Eww and dammit!
