About Today’s Photo:
Out hunting bugs yesterday in the front field, I came across this jumping spider making its way from leaf to leaf. It stopped only briefly enough for me to get this shot before it hopped on top of the unidentified bug right in front of it. Curiously, it hopped right off the bug immediately afterword having found, I suppose, the insect not to its liking.
