Default Jumping spider ID - name this little fella

Camping in BC right now near Elko, this little guy was on my tent fly. Could any of you with spidey senses ID this spider?

I also saw (but did not photograph) another very small jumping spider here, it was smaller by a fair bit than the above specimen; both thorax and abdomen were a solid teal green color with no markings, was dark or black on remainder of the spider. Any possible ID's?

Well a coworker located this little fella, a male Johnson's jumping spider (at least I think so, Phidippus johnsoni). They sure are entertaining to watch, anyone else keep jumping spiders?

Keep them?.... No.

Play with them when we cross paths?..... Of course.
