We almost missed seeing this female hiding in bushes
in Mercur Canyon. She had some kind of stink bug
in her grasp.  © Carol Davis 10-8-2019

              prey
She was trying to drag this bug quickly down
through the bush so we couldn't steal her
catch :]  © Carol Davis 10-8-2019

This female Phidippus apacheanus jumper on Antelope
Island had a surprised look on her face like she was
wondering what in the heck kind of predator I was and
 if I was about to steal her moth. I prefer shrimp (not
 brine shrimp, either). © Carol Davis 8-14-2015
