Hello friends!
I found this little spide sunning itself, maybe trying get a tan...I had never seen it before and I don´t know its ID.It is very very small and I thing that is not a crab spider.
Please, someone help identify?
All my love,
PS:This picture was kindly identified by Philippe Moniotte (pgmoni) as JUMPING SPIDER.
Thanks Philippe! I appreciated it!

Jumping spiders contain over 5.000 species making Salticidae the largest of the spider families. They are widely distributed over the planet and can even be found up mount Everest. The jumping spiders are aptly named as they can spring more than 50 times their own body length to land on unsuspecting prey. They hunt actively rather than catching prey in a web and they have excellent vision, with four big eyes in front and four smaller eyes on the top of their head.

Scientific name: Salticidae

Rank: Family
Common names:

Gooood morning/evening ....day/night dear aNa! Wonderful out of focus Jumping spider we have here from the far...far Brazil. How lovely! Of course at aperture of f/4.5 we can not expect massive depth of field and often even the tiniest subject ..like this one here can be out of the focusing field easily! Lovely natural light however and fantastic white balance indeed.

Hola Ana.
Linda arañita sin duda. tiene en su haber bellos colores y en lo que a mi respecta no esta fuera de foco. Los colores verdes contrastan muy bien tambien.
Saludos Ana.. Un abrazo fraternal.

Ciao Ana, great macro of lovely spider, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, un abbraccio Silvio

Hi Ana,
Lovely captured of this litter spider, very good point of view, great details and nice natural colours, very well seen and sorry I can't help you with the ID:)
Thanks for sharing and have a goodnight,
Best Regards,

Hi Ana,
Very good exposure and focus in capturing this spider!
good clarity, natural colour and details in it
well done

It's a jumping spider, family salticidae. A nice picture, well composed. The spider could have been in sharper focus, though.

Hello aNa,
I think you did well to have captured this very small and elusive little jumping spider. That, seen in perspective, IMO makes up for the lack in sharpness. Best wishes.

La composición, el entorno y los colores de primera. La luz algo justa.
Una especie que no conocía... normal ya que aquí especies de gran tamaño no es que haya muchas.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi.
