Skull-Faced Jumping Spider

Ok - I know... that title alone is enough to turn anyone away from this post, but this spider really does look like he has a skull on his face - it is uncanny. Plus, I promise to take a little break from the spiders after today. I have more shots to share of this guy, but I'm going to spread them out a bit and switch back to some flowers and some other bugs (including a hummingbird hawk moth!) over the coming days.
But check this guy out...
Technical Data: Canon EOS 7D, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, 1/250 sec at f/16. Canon Speedlight 580EX II flash in auto mode and wireless control. Image Stabilization on. ISO 160. RAW processing in Adobe Camera Raw.
Going to skip the discussion for now... I've got a bunch of photos to process so I have other stuff than spiders to share... ;)
Thanks for stopping in.
