@ceherzog.. Not all jumpers are photogenic..! Many jumpers just disappear in one single jump without giving a single pose..:-( This one was very good at posing though..;-)

Can't help on an exact ID, but it is a species of jumping spider, you can tell by the huge two front eyes and the slightly smaller ones to the side
