Black Hairy Jack o'Lantern Spider - Phidippus regius
Sorrento, Lake County, Florida, USA
August 11, 2015
Size: Half inch
Curious what she is. Only found one image on the web. Just a lady talking about having one in her hair. I found her (the spider, not the lady) floating in my pool still alive. She was rescued and set free.
