A Bold Jumping Spider on a Red Pepper Plant

I’d just walked out of Whole Foods and this huge hairy spider with big green eyes got my attention. There were flats of vegetable plants for sale. My neighbor stopped by my front porch and she was able to identify the type of spider. I actually videoed inadvertently just as it jumped. Hanging by a thread. Says they don’t build webs.    Phidippus audax

I noticed how the exact same leaf looks differently as the light and angle change.
