Magnolia Jumping Spider – How many eyes can you count?!

Magnolia Jumping SpiderI found this fellow on a branch at eye level. He was very curious and lived up to his name by jumping onto my iPhone. I shook him off like a little girl, and watched him hide under some dead leaves. I lost him.

About five minutes later, as I was photographing an orb weaver spider in the same area, I felt something crawling up the hairs on my leg. It was my friend, this little Magnolia Jumping Spider. Thinking quickly, I used a leaf to scoop him off my leg, and placed him safely on the ground, so I could get some quick pics.
