Twin-Flagged Jumping Spider (Anasaitis canosa)

Origin: Mexico and Southeast United States
Sighted at: My home, Austin, TX

This curious little guy landed on my hand as I was preparing breakfast this morning. Do spiders like peanut butter?

Jumping spiders have been more and more noticeable over the past couple of weeks – perhaps because of the changing season? This species is very small, not even a half an inch long.
