Clear. You must be wandering from home in search of jumpers now.

 
Thanks Herschel!
Yeah, I went on a quick trip to Corpus Christi over Spring Break and took my camera along with high hopes of finding some Phidippus species not present up here in Oklahoma.

Between periods of swimming about in the ocean, I wandered the dunes near the beach for hours checking nearly every plant as I went. Over the duration of about 5 hours of searching, I found 3 adult males of this species, 2 sub-adult males, and about 5 females at different stages of maturity.

Finding and watching these little guys made the trip for me!
