Female Salticid with Prey

This female salticid was avoiding the advances of this male Habronattus coecatus on a pile of logs. She had caught a small fly but his advances were aggressive enough she dropped it to avoid him.

All photos taken with a Canon 5d Mark 2, Canon Mp-e 65mm lens, and a diffused Canon mt-24ex flash.


And here is another rather unique looking spider I found on the same woodpile.
