First animal of the year: Jumping Spider in home

I caught a jumping spider (Marpissa muscosa), belonging to the Family Salticidae, in my home today, and that was my only interaction with wildlife today and first one of the year!

It actually looked kind of cute, especially its big eyes,, although it was difficult to take pictures because I didn't want it to escape and it kept circling around in the container. Some great pictures of M. muscosa by other people here at Flickr.

Here you get a decent view of its eyes above.

The spider looking at me with those soulful eyes.

Time to let you go free, little fellow.

Here's an interesting introduction with many photos on Jumping Spiders.
