A tiny jumping spider protecting its egg sac on the underside of a leaf . it took a fiercely defensive position as i approached the sac to click pics ,note the way it is just hanging with two legs wile the other legs are braced together. I have rotated the first pic so as to get a better look at the eggs and the way such a tiny little jumper is protecting them. The eggs are covered with a jelly like material which in turn is covered with a sticky web.
