This is known as a Jewel Box Spider. The six spine-like projections on the abdomen are characteristic of this species. We have many living around our house...thank you for your kind comments!

What an unusal looking spider Linn. I have never before seen one but it sounds like you see then often. Good job of capturing this little guy with all it's interesting shapes and colors.

As others said, I have never seen such an unusual looking spider. Like from a fantasy film. And you captured it beautifully, Linn. Congrats on your win.

What a fantastic macro of this jeweled spider, Linn. Terrific lighting, DOF & detail especially to capture the six spine-like projections on the abdomen. Glad we do not have them around here, although I think they are quite harmless....congrats!!!
