    Doing a Google search on “metallic-green chelicerae” gave me the answer. The metallic/iridescent appearance of the chelicerae is characteristic of the Phidippus family, and the blue or green color is characteristic of the species Phidippus audax, known commonly as the “Daring Jumping Spider” or “Bold Jumping Spider”.

    Yes, bold jumping spider. Fairly common in New York although I haven't seen any around our yard this year. I took that shot with flash, the green lights up like a road sign. Looks like yours had flash or nice bright light too.
    I must have a really good camera.

    Post your spiders
    I had set out to photograph a different spider, that I spotted as I was coming home from Church today. I think it was an immature Latrodectus Hesperus, like the one in my last post, but much, much smaller. After changing out of my suit, I set my camera up for close macro shots, and came out to photograph the spider that I had spotted. As I was shooting away at it, some motion on my hand caught my eye, and I spotted a completely different sort of spider on my hand. I took several shots of it, then blew it off toward some nearby grass. I returned to shooting the spider I had originally set out to shoot, and then another spider, similar to the one on my hand, as it climbed up a nearby post.

    Out of all my shots, there was only one that came out well enough for me to think it worth any further processing. All the shots of the first spider came out badly overexposed, and all but one of the shots of the other spiders came out blurry. It's tricky photographing critters this small, and calls for more patience and steadiness than I really had today.
