Curious jumping spider

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Holly Haeseler

Our eight-year-old daughter Willa alerted me to this jumping spider's presence in the backyard as she knows them to be favorites of mine - they are a photographer's dream! I coaxed him up onto my flip flop which I balanced between my knees in a seated position, and he seemed enthralled with the huge "eye" of my camera lens. After our photo shoot he was returned to the shrubs.

Location: Poway, CA
