Macro Monday {Phidippus audax}

Daring (or Jumping) Spider

I was turning our compost tumbler when this tiny thing appeared and scared me out of my wits. It was extremely tiny! I believe it is a juvenile. I went to the house to grab my camera. This was the last shot I took. I gathered up my courage and slowly got as close to the critter as I could, took a deep breath to calm my nerves and snapped the picture. I am amazed at how well it turned out.
