Male jumping spider, body length 6mm. Males of this species have two forms: the first, has a black body, pale yellowish legs and three small tufts of black hair on the cephalothorax; the second form (as in this photo) has a grayish body with red, white, and black markings. The female resembles this male form.
This guy was found on the side of my house but they are found all over hunting for food. No waiting on a web for jumping spiders.
Chilled in refrigerator, photographed and released.
