Best Tenant (Jumping Spider, Phidippus audax)

As in the previous post, I am featuring one of the numerous shots of a quite regular subject, namely Phidippus audax. Apart from its endearing curiosity, large eyes, and beautiful green chelicerae, it also is a longtime resident in the home, sometimes even showing up around the year end holidays (when I am writing this, incidentally). So I have a certain fondness for “somebuggy” (why, I’m cringing so hard I can’t see the backspace button) that is always there for me. So welcome your spiders, they make good tenants, especially these jumpers. (See below for another shot of our friend.)
