Sub-Adult Female Phidippus putnami (With Video!)

A very cheerful juvenile Phidippus putnami I found on an old rusty metal bridge.

 

I contemplating keeping it captive until it reaches maturity and photographing him/her again given how beautiful P. putnami adults are, but decided to let it loose to go off and fend for him/herself. Maybe next time.

I don't like having to say it - but could you guys cool it with posting all those big flashing group invite pictures in the comments? It's alright if you want if you want to to invite me to a group, and I appreciate the enthusiasm, but try to understand that they are interpreted by some as a bit annoying.

 

So in short - don't follow your group rules.
