Hi, Jennifer!

You have a jumping spider, in the genus Phidippus. Since you’re so far north, I think your spider is Phidippus audax. The other candidate is P. regius, but they’re typically found further south.

Jumping spiders are not dangerously venomous and are very beneficial to humans- not to mention fun to observe. Thanks for sharing!
