Yard Critter of the Week - Bold Jumping Spider

Bold Jumping Spider.

Shown here with a Gypsy Moth Caterpillar as its prey.

It was nice to have an ally in our fight against the Gypsy Moths, which reached plagues status this year.

This spider has an interesting pattern on it's abdomen (click the image to bigafy it).

For reasons that don't really make any sense, the pattern reminds me of Strong Bad of Homer Star Runner fame.

I said it didn't make any sense,

The spider is rather common in the yard in May and apparently enjoys caterpillars, as can be seen in this post.
