|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Back from a one week vacation in Hurghada, Egypt it is time to post a new picture. I did not get any good nature pictures down there but this one is OK. Most animal life I found under water and as I do not have a under water housing There are no evidence of tha sharks, turtles etc. I saw there.|
I found this litle one on my last day in Hurghada. The picture is not very good technically as I had to be fast and didn´t have a macro lens so I had to crop it a lot. But This spider intrigued me so I thought that I would put it up here and se if one of our spider experts can identify it. It was very fast and jumped around a lot. It was about 6-8 mm long.

Very original graphical shot. The position of the spider and general composition is perfect.

Nice shot Urban, it certainly belongs to the Salticidae family but I'm sorry to say that I can be of no further help with the ID. It's a ncie shot and the composition is strong. At a first glance the polyethene sheet look like ice. Well done.
Looks to be of the order of scareametodeathjumping spiders! I an so afraid of jumping spiders like this, one bit me once when I was younger. Your photo looks pretty good to me. I like the plastic he is sitting on, hopefully on his way out the door, if he was in my house!
Nice macro, Urban.
I can't help you with the ID.

Very nice shot.
On the thumnail, I thought the plastics wrap was ice!
Good colours and composition.
Can't help for the ID, sorry.
