Jumping Jack Flash

This little guy is about a quarter of an inch across, just 5-6 mm.

 

When I was trying to usher him in position to say cheese, up went the front legs waving frantically at me to leave.

 

A moment later, wishing I had forearms, sorry 4 arms, so that I could swivel, focus prod and press the shutter remote all at the same time, I used a long thin twig, to guide him, when he jumped over a foot through the air and landed on the top of the stick near my fingers.
