Mosaic Spider

I was looking for a place to take pictures of rocks and started with the picnic table. This quarter-inch spider took offense of my presence and plans. I switched to taking pictures of it. “Metallic spider” immediately came to mind with its stark pattern of green and gold. (The colors were more vivid from overhead.) I took 7 pictures; only this 1 was focused enough to use. The spider reared up 3 times and jumped, attacking the camera lens! From the view on camera display, it either hit the lens or almost did. It obviously had NO fear of me or the camera. It went over the edge of the table on the fourth jump, but caught itself on the lower corner of the wood.

My hat’s off to this fearless little critter!
