I placed a male and a female Peacock spider on a mirror hoping to get the male to do his little dance but I think the male was more interested in his own reflection than the girl.
I couldn't even distract him :)

They are very handsome and these are in my backyard. There are so many other types hopefully I will be able to get out and see them all :)

Wonderful stuff- presumably the spider was worried about the competition.

I generally don't like spiders. But this is a really cool photo that shows them in a different light.
