Nothing to see here, just a couple of cool spider species engaged in predation!
Misumena vatia (in white form) consuming a fly. These are called the goldenrod crab spider, but I find them on may flowers.
This plump one was the same one I had photographed on foxglove in the last post.
Misumena vatia in the yellow form with a fly. This one is not yet an adult.
Ambush predators are so cool.
A Phidippus jumping spider with another jumping spider!
You could share this and say she is carrying her babies to safety…Who will believe you will tell you a lot about your friends!
I wonder if these spiders make a lot of their living by preying on other jumpers. They seem to relish them!
