Gorgeous
I suspect this to be P. nikites. Looks like a female P. apacheanus, but being in California means that it should be P. nikites. This is from the distribution maps in the Revision of this genus.

Nice Shot!
Nice shot, considering unless they're eating, they don't care to sit for portraits. Personally, I think jumping spiders are just too cool, in both looks and behavior, not to mention their incredible predatory skills
