Jumping Spider: What Big Eyes You Have!!!

Dear Bugman
Just by chance, I ran into your wonderful website. I wonder if you can help me identify this spider. They tend to hang out on my wooden patio chairs and pounce on flies. They head into narrow cracks when disturbed and they are really fast. It took me a lot of time and efforts to get the photos I wanted.Thanks

Hi Shouqin,
Your photos are beautiful. We really can’t tell you much more than this is a Jumping Spider in the Family Salticidae. It could be a Metaphidippus species. We found an image online that seems to match your eye pattern.
