Bold jumping spider

This bold jumping spider (Phidippus audax) lived in a hole in the railing across from the Sunnyside Gus Ryder pool. I would look for it every time I passed by, and it would eat insects out of my hand. Like bluegills (found in nearby High Park), bold jumpers’ friendliness and curiosity are disarming.
