Two Young Jumping Spiders - Sharing?
Young Phidippus audax

two spiders sharing a meal
I saw a strange-shaped blob on a plant leaf in Red Butte Garden, SLC, Utah and couldn't tell
what it was until I took a picture because
the participants were so little. My point-and-shoot
camera  photo revealed
these two hunters "sharing" or possibly "fighting over" what looked
 to be a small wasp.  Below shows another view. © Carol Davis 7-17-2012

spiders and a wasp
As I came over the top of the leaf with the camera, the one little spider saw me
and those large eyes tell the whole story. I was probably its first encounter with
a human. Pretty scary stuff for baby spiders to see! © Carol Davis 7-17-2012
