He was on the fence at my grandfather's house... right by the driveway. He watched me get my camera out of the car and posed patiently while I took his portrait. Then, he quietly returned to his hole in the fence. Sadly, that fence doesn't have a very good internet connection. So, he hasn't been to PBase to see this photo.

It's a jumping spider. There are over 5000 species worldwide, and personally - they are incredibly fascinating! You are quite right to say he watched you; they have incredible vision - 8 eyes, 2 of which are enormous and forward facing.

I have a small plastic cubby house in the garden, and for some reason they tend to be found on this item more commonly than on plants. They'll also appear on my door and anything plastic which is in the yard.
