Hunters come in all sizes by Zx30 Hunters come in all sizes by Zx30
There are several of these little guys all around my home outside. They scale my house and just roam around looking for food every day. While I have managed to catch moments where they eat prey, I never can quite get it on camera as they're so fast to run away and hide with it. In this picture in particular, he stood still just long enough to capture this moment. He's about the size of a dime.

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-07-14
Hunters come in all sizes is a great example of the beauty of macro photography where arachnids are concerned! This spider is about the size of a dime, extraordinarily portrayed by ~Zx30 in all its clarity and focus. The colours also complement each other very well so that the background supports the main subject wonderfully. ( Suggested by cloe-patra and Featured by 3wyl )

It belongs to the Genus Menemerus. I once was fascinated by their speed (considering that jumping spiders rather jump than run). I believe that is the same with this ([link] species.

I used to have a huge spider phobia before I realized what amazing creatures they actually are.
