Thanks man.

Held it captive for about an hour... felt bad about it, I prefer just following and letting be, but I wanted to do this type of shot, so I kidnapped him and then made a ramshackle light box (old cardboard box with paper inside) with a transparent front.

I made sure to bring it back to where I found it tho.

I think this spider is a her, not a him. Not sure of the species, but male jumpers rarely have abdomens of that size in proportion to their bodies. Unless I'm mistaken, feel free to correct me...

I'm sure it didn't mind too much and you did take it back home. :)
