2013, Day 276 - Basking

Today we had a really wonderful break in the weather.  Still chilly this morning but with sun and by the afternoon it warmed up nicely.  While walking the dogs I noticed a couple large jumping spiders on their as-yet unripe tomatoes so when I got home i grabbed my camera and went back out the door.  He was still obligingly sunning himself on the green fruit and as I moved to take his picture from multiple angles he turned to follow me completely unperturbed by the camera.  Notice his metallic green chelicerae, on these daring jumping spiders (their actual name) they are either blue or green, and his orange coloring will generally fade to white as he matures so their is a pretty young guy.  Hopefully he is able to find a safe refuge from the approaching cold.
