Jumping Spider

Salticidae

Description:

I saw this jumping spider looking backwards and saw a crystal-like material on its head. When it turn around, it was a water droplet on its head. Does it gives the spider a headache? Or, does it makes its head cooler?

That water droplet is really interesting.
Looks like the head is shaped to hold it somewhat.
