I Spy a Spider

Who is looking at who?
Today I have found for you a Bronze Jumping Spider.
A small spider with excellent eyesight. (notice it's large front pair of eyes). They can turn their head separate from their body to look at objects.
Jumping spiders do not make webs to catch their prey. Instead they hunt by jumping on small insects.
Fascinating to watch.

Cheerio for now,

I wouldn't like it to leap in my direction. You sure have an interesting array of creatures in your part of the world.
Thank you for your comment about Rufus.
