    Jumping spider feeding on cricket (pics)

    I found this Phidippus jumping spider wandering around on my living room ceiling. Before releasing it outside I thought Id take a few photos, and considering that its abdomen looked a little small, I gave it a two-week old cricket to eat.

    These photos were also a test of a new flash bracket and diffuser Ive put together. I have to say that I am very pleased with the results!

    There are a couple more photos of this critter on my blog.
