In Search of the Jumping Spider Holy Grail…

This morning Mike agreed to come with me to the park near my office (it’s Saturday).  The place is just crawling with little jumping spiders.  I think of the place as a wee little spider treasure trove.

We found some straight away.  Mike quickly tired and lay on a grassy hill in a sunny patch.  The park is quiet, with a rush of water to drown out the sound of the local traffic.  It’s really peaceful there.

I did a few slow laps in search of more spiders and eventually settled on the grass beside Mike.  We spoke of this one jumping spider that has been eluding us for a few years now…

The peacock jumping spider.  Have you heard of it?  If you’re in Perth and you’ve seen one, please get in touch.  I am so keen (as is Mike) to see one in real life.  Where might we find one?  I’m always searching…and now Mike is too.
