I don’t usually think of spiders as being cute, but I make an exception for these spiders with raindrops on their heads.   Spiders don’t actually wear raindrops as hats because the raindrops only stay on their heads for less than a minute.  The photographer had to be quick and alert to catch them.

Click on Beautiful Jumping Spiders for a photo collection of gaudily-colored jumping spiders, which have eight eyes for 360-degree vision and jump on their prey instead of weaving webs.  A couple of them were caught with raindrops on their heads.
