OK. The crab spiders are cute, but this one takes it to the next level. I knew that it was a jumping spider, but now I’ve learned the word for those green parts: chelicerae. Thanks for the new knowledge, and for quite a laugh this early morning!
Yes, the chelicerae of these, being iridescent green, make them very distinctive, handsome spiders! 🙂
Thank you, Leyla; they are a joy to do! 🙂
Funny Tom! LOL 😀
Thanks much, Kym! It would make a nice card to send to an Optometrist! 🙂
Thanks much, Belinda! Your Nuthatches were awesome too! 🙂
hahaha He really is cute. Fun haiku! 😀
Have you seen the short animated clips on Youtube of Lucas the Spider? He is a jumping spider that I’m sure you will adore. 🙂
Glad you liked it, Scifi, and that you think she’s cute! Haven’t seen Lucas; will check it out! 🙂
I think you will love Lucas the Spider 🙂
Look at that green!!!
Yes, Roda, it sure makes them stand out! They are one of my favorite spiders (with a whole lot of personality)! 🙂
It’s a beautiful creature but it still gives me shivers!
They are harmless and are only interested in little flies and such! They are beautiful! 🙂
Fun haiku, Tom.
But no way am I volunteering to shave those legs!
So your arachnophobia is not entirely cured yet?! We’ll have to do more spider posts! 🙂
Yes, maybe you can desensitize me!
Hehe, they look like mine:) I can recommend some wax, but it hurts:) Have a nice day, Thomas, regards Mitza
I guess in Europe a lot of women don’t shave their legs. I like hairy spiders but that’s as far as it goes! 🙂
No, that‘s not true, only in wintertime it keeps you warm:)
Hope this wasn’t in our house.
She was on our house! A wonderful visitor! 🙂
Somehow it looks like a little puppy. 🙂 Perfect photo, like from a spiders’ realm of cuteness.
Thank you, Nicole! Yes, they have a very roundish with cute eyes that indeed makes them appear very puppyish! 🙂
Very handsome Tom. A real beaut.
Yes, thank you, Frank! 🙂 This species sure has a lot of personality! They are curious, comical, and can jump far and accurately (using their stereoscopic, 3d-seeing eyes)! 🙂
I’ll just watch, thanks, and leave the wrangling to you, Tom.
I wanna hold your hand hand hand hand hand hand…
🙂 Spiders eat beetles; they are not into Beatles music! 🙂
I wanna EAT your hand hand hand hand hand hand hand??
If you shave those hairy legs, they likely will be pasty white like all of ours from being indoors the last six months or so!
Pasty white! Yuk! 🙂
full of giggles!
Very glad it got you going! 🙂
Maybe the spider 🕷 likes hairy legs? Eurotrendy arachnids are the thing. 🕷
Could be! 🙂
Wooww Tom so amazing! Wonderful green colors! 🙂
Thank you, Marcela! 🙂
Wow you managed to make a spider actually look cute. Your photography is amazing.
Much appreciated, TM! They really are cute! 🙂
