A very small spider

Photo Information
This was a tiny spider. Used my Sigma 105mm Macro at a very close distance. I just love it's 4 eyes and beard. Is there a grin on it's face?
Taken in Spain. Anyone know it's name (no - it's not George or Fred etc. Mmmm - or Tracey or Britney!)

Mike-P - I googled jumping spiders and found your selection of them. Cute little things aren't they?

Haven't seen one of these in Spain and sure do not want to, but it is a great shot.

Great! (I like spiders).
It reminds me of the vehicles in the Paris-Dakar rally with all their lights on the roof. All the better to see with, I suppose.

Beautiful shot, I really love spiders, especially Jumping Spiders, they’ve got the best eye sight of all the spiders. This one looks like a House hopper (Euophrys parvula).
