Hi there.

One day after my holiday-trip to the City Bautzen/Saxony (some pictures will be shared soon) I found this little jumping-spider. In my humble opinion it's a male Marpissa muscosa.

This was an aggressive little guy. As I come closer with my finger - much bigger than him - he jumps instantly on my finger and back, trying to scare me away. I managed some close-ups and will now share 2 of them.

I always love their eyes, so beautiful and so many of them :)

Have all a great weekend.

Awesome capture! Jumping spiders are pretty amazing creatures, some of their eyes can actually move inside, focusing on a subject and they are incredibly intelligent amongst other spiders.

He's got a great pair of fangs for one so tiny. Outstanding macro!
