Mating Polyphemus Moths

Spider ID
I took this picture of a very interesting spider near my home in southern New York. It was quite aggressive, staring me down and flicking it’s fangs at me each time I moved. Can you tell me what it is? Also, I photographed this pair of Polyphemus moths mating last year and thouht you might like the picture. I have the originals if you’d like them (I reduced these for my weblog). Thanks!

Hi Kat,
Your spider is one of the jumping Spiders. It is your mating Polyphemus Moth photo thought that we are really interested in posting.
