Jumping Spider and Caught Feast

I found this diminutive Jumping Spider with a rather substantial size recently hatched and caught flying insect on the concrete bridge abutment of the pedestrian bridge over the Royal River in the Royal River Park in Yarmouth, Maine, USA. This small spider was easily moving the much larger insect about the abutment when I discovered them. For this image, I used my manual focus Tamron Adaptall-2 Model 52BB SP 90mm f2.5 Macro Lens and Tamron Adaptall-2 18f 1:1 Tube and Tamron Adaptall-2 Pentax K A Mount on Pentax K20D Camera, hand held, manually focused, SR 100mm, ISO 400, f13, 1/90 sec, with fill-in flash from camera's built-in electronic flash. This is a full resolutuion Large JPEG and is Straight Out Of Camera (SOOC) and is without any adjustment, cropping, or re-sizing. This is a 1:1 macro at the sensor.
