Hi Guys,

This little (Feisty) chap hitched a ride home in my suitcase from Tenerife to the UK. At least I think he did. We seem to only have Zebra Jumping Spiders here in the UK. I wanted to photograph these in Tenerife but there was an issue with my camera. Luckily this one was on the wall next to the open suitcase. He was that feisty he had to go in the fridge to slow him down before I could photograph him. Released unharmed.

Thoughts? Also can anyone identify the species??

Taken handheld single shot with crappy cheap extenders on a 105mm Lens. Single flash off camera.

Don't know the answer to the question, but he's a handsome fellow.
