This tiny dude sees his reflection in my lens. He pounced and chased my lens all around. Male jumping spiders are very territorial. He did a dance to warn, what he thought was another male, to go away. When that didn’t work, he went a little berserk and after a while I figured that was enough frustration for one itty bitty spider and I let him be on his way.-Spores&More

Another great submission! Jumping spiders are amazing and are the largest family (Salticidae) of spiders, containing >10% of all species of spiders. 

I like his face. Seems a charming fellow.
