Jumping Spider

I pulled up a patch of weeds in my backyard this afternoon. It disturbed lots of spiders and crane flies who had been living there. This was the cutest of the spiders (and the slowest moving).

I think jumping spiders are "cute" because they have big eyes and short legs. My lumpy pink hand sure doesn't look cute though. I didn't intend to have her in my hand. She started out on a leaf, but she jumped, and this turned out to be one of the best shots.
