I think this is a jumping spider. It spent about 5 minutes attacking it's reflection in the little bowls. In this photo, it was attacking the reflection behind it. It has just turned around and discovered the new reflection in front of it. It literally did a double take when it saw itself again! It was amazing to watch. I also have a movie of it, but with no time to set up tripod, too much camera shake.You really had to be there to appreciate this shot! Anyway, here it is.
