Who's that spider? Sitting on the rose bush?
I know it's a blurry image, but I am struggling with close up focus with the digital camera. Still, any ideas? About the size of a dime, maybe a bit smaller. Black, with white markings, eight legs, on the rose bush.
The rose tree got trimmed back a bit, a scary proposition for me. I really don't want that kind of scratch. Really would be nice to grow lovely roses, so I am pruning away to get it in better shape. Whole lotta dead wood. Doing no more than I have bin to clear away. Still, now we can get the garbage, recycling and lawn waste bins beside the house, not just out on the front lawn. The neighbor loaned me use of his this week, so I could make a dent in my pile. That got picked up yesterday morning.
Ok, I should have researched, then asked.
Apparently it's a Daring Jumping Spider. Not a threat to humans, & as is often the case, eats other bugs. So, cool.
