Meet Phidippus clarus, a common species of jumping spider uncommonly photographed in a portrait style by USGS Bee Inventory and Monitoring researcher Sam Droege.

Droege runs a Flickr page with photos of other animals done in a similar style, and they’re consistently breathtaking. But look at the eyes on clarus! Plus, those metallic colors are very fashionable.
