My Tiny Housemate - Adanson's House Jumper

I have been seeing this tiny housemate for some times but just too lazy to him to pose for me some nice shot. While cleaning my camera after another field trip this morning, he appear infront of me again to 'beg' for some shot . . . well his wish granted! 8-)
As with other jumping spiders, this Adanson's House Jumper (Hasarius adansoni) spider have eight eyes, four in front and four on top.This tiny spider measured only about less than half a cm. There are white crescent on the abdomen and cephalothorax . This housemate of mime is a male.Female is slightly bigger in size and are dark brown colour. I have not seen any female yet, well perhaps this housemate of mine prefer to stay single??
