Author's notes

A jumping spider - As you'll see (photos 2 and 3) it can tuck it's abdomen under and give a very good impression of a bird dropping. Once induced to move it faced me and vibrated its white tipped palps rapidly. A very impressive and (perhaps) fearsome display for intending predators. Found in montane Swamp at 930m elevation.
