Zebra in the bathroom

I noticed a little zebra spider on the bathroom window, rushed off to get camera and the right lens, then bothered her for a few minutes. I think I should have used a smaller aperture to get her legs a bit clearer, but her back has come out pretty well.

 

The spider was about 7mm long. According to Wikipedia, "zebra spiders are often noted for their 'curiosity' when observed by humans; many seem aware of their audience and seem to respond to observation by raising their heads and studying the observer." - I've got some photos of this spider doing that, but sadly they are all far too dark or blurry.
