Bold Jumping Spider - Phidippus audax

I got a call from my sister who is the produce manager at the local grocery store, saying there was a spider on some grapes that came in. I quickly went and picked it up and thanks to Bugguide I knew it was a docile little jumping spider and that it also eats crickets. Since we were heading to the city, I bought it some and lunch was served.

Can I change my favourite - this one, and also the one with the spider on the yellow leaf, are poking me with sharp sticks of appreciation.
