Anonymous asked: I've seen a lot of pics of jumping spiders with dew drops on their heads, do they do that on purpose? Why? Is it just a fashion statement?

I’ve gotten this question about 10 times now, anyway I don’t think they do it on purpose they are just in rain or dew or other water source the the little hairs on their bodies trapped the water drop, it sure is cute though :)

Mama wolf spider at the Appomattox River in Virginia, United States. I was taking picture of an adorable jumping spider on my leg, when I looked over to see this lady hanging out beside me. 
AS: nice picture!

Not entirely sure what type of spider this little friend is, but it was hitching a ride on my arm at the river, and it ran all over my arms and legs being super cute. 
AS: You got yourself a little Bark Crab spider!

Found this big one outside a friends house, any idea? It hangs out by her window, probably doing wonders for her arachnophobia xD
AS: it’s some kind of orb weaver, probably a barn or garden

My mother found this while I am away at college, would you happen to know what this lovely one is? 
AS: it’s a hard to tell for sure with this picture, but it’s the right size and shape for an Argiope!

An expecting Araneus marmoreus who decided to move in on my porch this morning. Hoping to track down where she’s hiding so I can find her a safer spot than our gutter to start laying her eggs. (Southern NJ)
AS: ooo neat find! she’s adorable :)
