We made a cool nature discovery, and just had to share. Little eagle eyes first discovered it tucked into a crevice of his volunteer sunflower. And one of our first observations of it was the gigantic leaps it made when we disturbed its sun bathing. Then in a blink it was back up to where it used to be. I read later that it leaves guide lines to get back. It's hard to see in the photos but it was very hairy and had a colorful mandible!
The website said, "These spiders move quickly in a jerky, irregular gait and can run sideways and backward. The two middle eyes of jumping spiders are particularly large and jumping spiders have the best vision of spiders, seeing objects up to eight inches away." It is pretty remarkable for being only 1/4 inch long.
"I am recording this so that future generations will also praise the Lord for all He has done." -Psalm 102:18
