White-headed jumping spider
While wandering the grounds around the main ranger station of Pang Sida National park I came across this very active jumping spider. I can't remember what it was perched on, but every time I tried to get a different angle on it, it would turn to face me. I witnessed it jump 8-10 inches in a single leap, so I was wary of getting too close to it head on. I managed to get this shot before it leapt.
