Apache jumper. Thomas Shahan eschewed the usual angles he shoots from in order to show this spider's most prominent feature: its reddish-orange markings. He actually found two of the spiders but only shot this one, moving the other, which had almost no hair left, to a safer location. He's not completely sure if this is an Apache jumper; it could be a similar spider known as Phidippus cardinalis. <strong>Thomas Shahan - www.thomasshahan.com</strong>
