I had seen a photo on the internet of a jumping spider on a match and wanted to recreate it, unfortunately I didn't have one handy so I had to settle for a white Christmas spider. :) :)

Can't help with the ID but great shots of this tiny wonder. Looks like it might be a juvenile possibly but I just guess.

Lester,
We call them Christmas spiders because they tend to appear around december, they are also known as spiny or jewel spiders
their technical name is Austracantha minax
This is a male

Cool, more interesting than a Jumper to me as we don’t get any species like this.

Cool. Tiny little critter and an excellent way of showing that.
