Some pests have a photogenic and magnetic personality. So it is with jumping spiders.

Recently this tiny spider was photographed by NJ resident, Barbara Storm, who submitted a picture of the spider perched on a begonia pedal to the 13th annual Smithsonian photo contest.

According to Ms. Storm, the jumping spider lives in the backyard of her home in Tewksbury. Ms. Storm stated “some of the most magnificent and beautiful creatures can be found in your own back yard.” With so many skittering specimens making their way around, it’s easily a photographer’s dream come true for colorful and unusual photo opportunities.

Ms. Storm’s jumping spider picture became one of the finalists out of over 46,000 submitted from veteran and amateur photographers around the world.
