Phidippus putnami jumping spider

Adult female Phidippus putnami jumping spider eating a long-legged Dolichopodid fly.

 

Single exposure, hand held, diffused flash.

 

The male of this species is one of the most impressive looking jumping spiders in North America. The female may not be as visually striking as the male, yet she's still quite beautiful in her own way.
