Daring Jumping Spider-used ChaCha again

Daring Jumping Spider
It was a nice evening to sit outside with my daughter as the breeze cooled off the 90+ degree day as we discussed the ‘goings on’ of the day. She adjusted her cushion on the Adirondack chair and off jumped a large but fuzzy spider. Yikes!

As we discussed what kind of spider it was, she said “let’s give ChaCha a try!” (yesterday’s post) Sure enough, it came through again after a quick description of the hairy little arachnid with a white spot on its abdomen. Wilda D. related a text message in about as much time as it took me to run into the house and get my camera. The answer was that our little friend was a Daring Jumping Spider.
