Zebra Spider

Now that spring has finally arrived a growing number of invertebrates are starting to appear in my garden. One of the first was the Zebra Spider (Salticus scenicus), a tiny jumping spider that can often be found on rocks and walls warming itself in the sun. On one particular day a couple of weeks ago I found 3 different individuals, including this one who was exploring some moss on top of a rock.


Zebra Spiders' eyes make them very photogenic, dare I say it almost cute? :)
