    Metallic Jumper

    Found this little guy (about 1/8th inch) on my car as I was about to leave. It had an awesome metallic abdomen and gold flecks on it's legs. Caught it so I can take it's pic when I got home. I decided to keep him/her, fed it some wingless fruit flies.

    What a beautiful specimen!

    How do you catch it and bring home, do you have a deli cup and lid in the car at all times? If I see something interesting I never have anything secure to carry it home in.

    Heh, no. I was at home when I found him, so capturing him wasn't a problem. But good idea, I'm gonna leave a deli cup in my car at all times just in case!
