Another ant mimic jumping spider

The ant mimic with a large mandible, a rare find..

This shot is unevenly-lit, but from the Press photographer's point of view, its showed that the spider is indeed a spider, not an ant.

While I was testing my new diffuser snoot yesterday evening, I came across another ant
mimic jumping spider.This one is unique because it has a mandible instead of a long snout.Its black in colour and was harder to differentiate with other ants that as roaming on the
same area.The first thing I noticed is the fact that the jumper was shy and it hid away when I
approached it.I managed to fire off two shots before it made a run and disappeared.Hopefully, I will find this unique jumper again.
