Saltidae Phidippus sp(unk2)

He's eating lunch which I saw him catch and it looked like a small wasp. He/she is about 3/8 inch from front to back..much larger than the others I have photographed. It has the same bad habit of hopping my lens.  They are hilarious. After he caught this, he carried it over to me and looked up as if to say "Want to share lunch?" Or maybe it was "I'll give you this if you'll go away". It was so big it took him quite a while to eat it.
