But what spider is it?
Seriously, I'd like to know what this is...its very tiny...fast...and is not scared of humans...it jumped right at me as soon as I took this photo...got a nice little jump for such a small spider...I'm sure it jumped at least 3 or 4 inches...although I didn't hold it...I would imagine it was the size of a man's pinkie nail...
Spiders... they make for cool pictures... But when I am shooting spiders... I use my 75-300 at max zoom... I HATE them thar arachnids.... I admit that I am an arachnophobe...
Sorry I don't know what kind that is...
Oh, come now, it was just a LITTLE itty-bitty, teeny-weeny spider...now this dead wolf spider was HUGE...thankfully it was DEAD...otherwise I may have had to become arachnophobic for a little bit...:
Another arachnophobic here and when I read the "jumped at me" I was swathed in goosebumps. Thanks, lol.
Are there any ideas as to what kind this is and/or does anyone know of any forums I could post this "snapshot" to that would house people in-the-know?
You can often get ID help at www.bugguide.net.
looks like a black house spider(yes i realize the image posted looks like its outside ) Black house spider - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I was thinking "Mortimer"
I was thinking it was a Black House Spider as well, but they seem to be larger than this was unless this was immature...and it WAS taken inside...well...a covered porch anyways...thank you for all the help...
I too have arachnophobia...now I won't sleep tonight - thanks!
