Jumper spider, failed jump.

The spiders of salticidae family are legendary because of several behaviour features, one of the is that they do not resist to jump to the flash diffuser during a photo session.

Moved this one inside home and tried some sequences, in this one the jumper planned a jump to the flash diffuser but gave up the jump as the diffuser was somewhat distant, is nice to see they are reluctant if a jump is going to fail.

All photos with Canon 7d, Canon MP-E 65mm macro photo lens @ about 2x, 580 EX II flash (failed in one shoot of sequence)
