About the Shot
I saw this 3 mm Euophrys frontalis jumping spider walking on the ground near a road by a (rare) sunny day. It was a totally unexpected meeting because I was not looking for spiders and I did not even have my camera with me but I recognized, even at three meters (I surprised myself), that jumping spider's way to move. I'm really happy because it's a new specie for me to add to my jumping spider list, and also because this little male has totally awesome orange/red and blue colours plus nice white fur at, I think, strategic places. He is one of the prettiest spider I have seen for the moment, I hope to find the female one day.
