jumping spider

Phidippus Clarus

Description:

Hurricane Irma brought this girl to my back door. It often waits upside down near the top of a plant, which may be useful for detecting prey, and then quickly jumps down before the prey can escape

Habitat:

Mostly found in old fields throughout eastern North America.
