You Talkin' to Me? You Talkin' to Me? 

Another jumping spider has stared me down! This one is Phidippus purpuratus and I photographed her north of Debert on August 25th. I always feel like the perp staring back at Harry Callaghan when he asks, "You've gotta ask yourself a question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?" when I get to macro range (about 45 cm or 18" with my setup) with these spiders. But for some reason this one made me feel more like the reflection of Travis Bickle in Taxi. "You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Then who the hell else are you talking... you talking to me?" Then again, maybe I've just got some kind of persecution complex...
