Spotted at the Conservancy: This jumping spider spun a cozy home in the curl of a dried leaf over the winter. Jumping spiders’ large hind legs help them to jump six inches (10 to 20 times their body length) when they’re hunting or threatened. Their four prominent front eyes (and four perimeter eyes) help them see prey or predators from most angles. Photographer Bonnie Ott stayed very still to capture this image!
