Salticus scenicus, this is a Zebra Jumping Spider found on Common Milkweed.
First time I’ve seen one of these!
We used to get a lot of photos of them. They seem to know where there body would match the substrate. That might be why you haven’t seen one. 🙂 Anyone know of any good studies on how spiders know where to pose? I usually find this species on black and white granite stones. Here in the Granite State, that’s easy.
Awesome tactic! And thanks for teaching me something new!
