Hello Hernán,
Can't help you with the ID, but it looks like a dangerous spider if the warning colour is to be taken seriously. In this way it looks like the the European Ladybird Spider.
This is a fine sharp shot and well composed.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hola Hernan
what a beauty ! certainly aposematic colours
perhaps mimicking ladybug
all the best, and maybe see you soon :)

dommage qu'elle soit beaucoup surexposée

I also believe mimicry of Ladybird is manifest in the look of this spider, Hernan.
It is a well captured shot and gives a fair idea about this creature.
TFS and take care.

Una difícil captura Hernan, imagino que por las condiciones de luz (la cuenta de tu EXIF da que disparó a 1/2000... realmente mucho).
Personalmente nunca vi una especie así en Buenos Aires, realmente llamativa por el colorido y forma de su cuerpo.
Buen punto de vista captando detalles de su conformación incluyendo algunos de sus ojos, aunque no tiene una nitidez ideal por los reflejos producidos, pero lo inusual del espécimen amerita su publicación.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo

Hi Hernan,
Amazing intense colors in that unique spider. No idea on the ID, but you have captured it very well. Nice detail and a freat frame filling composition.

Hello Hernan,
From a distance I would think it's a beetle... Very interesting animal. Very nice composition, however I think it's slightly overexposed on its back, and could be sharpened a bit. Anyway, thanks for an interesting contribution.
Best greetings,

Hola Hernan,
Buen macro con gran nitidez y mucho detalle, es la primera vez que veo un ejemplar así, gracias por compartirlo. Un cordial saludo

Interesting that nobody came out with its ID upto now! Great composition my friend, only the upper part is a little overexposed but the overall details and sharpness are just fine!

Hello Hernan,
this is quite the close up. The DoF and the sharpness is wonderful. I love the intense colors. The composition is very nice, the tight crop and the diagonal work very well.
