I'd like to share some macro pics with the Fascinating Insects community.
Last January, I took these photos in two different locations. One of my interests is photographing the behavior of jumping spiders, and if I ever had the chance to meet one, I would not pass it up. Despite the fact that photographing jumping spiders is difficult, I enjoy it.
The first is the multi-Colored Phintella. This is a jumping spider belonging to the genus Phintelloides. Even though it was so small, there was no denying that it was a dangerous predator. As you can see, a flesh fly has become its prey. And, like most jumping spiders, it will never let go of its prey, despite the fact that there are other perils in its path.
On the other hand, I captured a Phanias jumping spider (Phanias albeolus) crawling through the grass. This jumper is also small, like the multi-Colored Phintella. What was it doing in that place? I believe it is also sniffing for prey. There were a lot of insects in the meadow that it could easily kill in one bite.
Thank you for stopping by 🙂
