Looks like a tiny scorpion but don’t see a tail.

Jumping Spider: Hentzia palmarum

As you can see from this BugGuide posting, this is a male Jumping Spider, Hentzia palmarum.  According to BugGuide:  “Southern and eastern US.”  Jumping Spiders in the family Salticidae pose no threat to humans.

Awesome for me.  Bad for the neighborhood kids that really wanted it to be a scorpion.
Thanks for the reply.
