Haven`t taken many shots these last couple of days for various reasons, but yesterday I came across this little Zebra Spider so couldnt resist getting a few snaps.....

Wonderful shots. How large is the Zebra? I spotted a very tiny one on our house just yesterday and it was eating a very small insect. I might post it today though it might be a let down after all your wonderful jumping spider shots. lol

Thanks Beth. The Zebras are about the size of a grain of rice.....very tiny. I`ve yet to capture one with prey....missed an opportunity last week when one caught a fly but the fly escaped while i was away getting my camera
I hope you do decide to post the pic....I`m sure it`ll be good, having seen your macro gallery elsewhere on the web

Ok, this one was about that size too. Well, with macros, I sure feel out of practice. I have forgotten everything. :G

Great shots! I especially like the first one. Last summer I saw lots of jumpers in my backyard but so far I have only seen two this year. I really like shooting them they are such a challenge and such cool looking little creatures.
