Another ant mimic jumper

And I thought I've seen them all.
The latest Myrmarachne on my picture collection is a red one with a long snout.
I've captured at least two of such jumping spiders on my camera and while I was still feeling euphoric about the ant mimic crab spider, I spotted its jumping spider cousin on a leaf.
It didn't take long for me to work on capturing at least two shots of the spider.
And like its crab spider cousin, its not easy to photograph this little critter because it moves around a lot.
I managed to squeeze a few shots and the shot turned out okay and I hope to record as many as possible in future outings.
