Pelegrina proterva (male)

"Reckless Jumper"

There are a few tiny jumpers (4mm) that I see very often but have been unable to photograph because they   never seem to sit still. For some strange reason I had individuals of three of these crazy hyper species decide to pose for me today. Thank you jumping spider gods!! Photo © copyright by Patrick Zephyr.
