Hunting Spider

These spider photos are some shots taken in the summer of 2008 in central Ohio. My favorite shot is the black jumping spider (with hairy white fangs that look like a giant bushy mustache) stalking the leafhopper. Fortunately for the leafhopper, the spider did not find him. However, the other jumping spider was more successful—he caught an ant in his pursuit for lunch.

Spider in Dark Tunnel

The spider in this shot is hiding in the shadows on the right. It is waiting at the entrance to a hollow tunnel in the base of a tree.
