The Remarkable Courtship of the World’s Most Beautiful Spider

"Courtesy of Jurgen Otto, we have some spectacular images and video of a the Australian peacock spider, Maratus volans. At only 4 mm long (about one-sixth of an inch), it’s easy to overlook, but how much you would miss if you did!"

That little spider has star quality. My grandson watched with me and thought it was awesome.
