Macro Monday – What does the spider carry?

Today I spent almost an hour trying to photograph a jumping spider. It was walking on a basil leaf and trying to hide something it was holding with his front legs. It was difficult to see with the naked eye because it was not larger than 3-4 mm. Anyway I took some photos, not very clear, but from which yyou can see that the spider is carrying something.

I share these photos with Macro Monday Challenge.

  • What does the spider carry?

    • an ant
    • a smaller spider (maybe his child)
    • another type of spider it hunted

  1. From the white front legs of the critter he is carrying I would have to go with another type of spider, the back end is a different shape so it cant be one of his own. I say spider but not his kind.

  2. I cant say the spider could be carrying anything…Great photo, I believe we also get these jumping spiders and I don’t mind this type it is not poisonous, we do have poisonous spiders in New Zealand but not life threatening.
