Argy Bee, I placed this spider on my hand because its hard to take a shot while its on the web because of the never ending strong wind in the area. Now only did I realize that It does look good for a ring.

Amazing! The spottings like this make me thankful for Project Noah. Without it, we would have never known how cool this little tiny spider looks! Thanks for sharing Jolly!

I have edited this spotting with a general name. I still cannot find its exact species.

Yes Adarsha. I have to travel by plane. The distance from my place (Zamboanga City) to Manila where I found this spider is 536 miles or 863 kilometers.

Yeah - it looks like a mask from some lost civilization. There are others with different design but I can't reach it high on the tree.
