A macro video of a very large (15mm or so) adult female Phidippus audax jumping spider that the videographer found in a light fixture. Set to a recording he made in December with a vintage Japanese Alvarez classical acoustic and a Kay Swingmaster hollowbody electric.

    I love Phidippus audax. The males have bright green chelicerae and will strike a defensive pose if you wave a small object, like a pencil, in front of them. My family calls them “phids.”
