Bold Jumper Spider

This male Bold Jumper Phidippus addax was holding court on a daylily bud.  This is his back side because he kept hiding from me as I tried to take his picture.  Here is his front side (web picture):
This shows the male's front facing eyes and shining green mouth parts.  Their bodies go through several changes and look different accordingly.  Plus, the male and female look different.  No matter what, they are another interesting garden spider. 

They have no need to trap food in a woven web, they scurry around and jump on them.  The little guy in my garden did a few jumps at me in an attempt to show me I should leave him alone.  It worked.
