~Sitting Pretty~

A rather attractive Sitticus pubescens enjoying the sun, one thing I know is that these guys love the warmth, they seem to prefer the darker bricks on the wall by the Nottingham Canal, perfect camouflage for them and a great hunting territory, they being the ambush masters of the Salticidae world, they seem to just sit and wait for their prey.

 

This is a two image stack, quite happy that I managed a stack with this species, they do seem to adopt this particular looking down pose, where Salticus scenicus often looks straight ahead when resting.

 

Also in the comments, the swarm of Bees on the side of our house yesterday, I think they are establishing a nest, much to the annoyance of my Landlord :o)
