Special things come in samll packages is epitomised by this group of Australian spiders

http://www.amusingplanet.com/2012/12/meet-most-gorgeous-peacock-spider.html

"To get the attention of the female spider the male first waves his legs, vibrate his abdomen and moves from side to side. He also raises his third legs which have a brush of black bristles and the white-tipped ends. And then like a peacock, he raises the two magnificently coloured flaps and dances for the female. It’s this final act that has earned the spider, and indeed the whole genus Maratus, the name of Peacock Spider. "
