Here's a jumping spider that was crawling on the inside of my glass front door. Using flash blackened the background nicely!

This appears to be some kind of crab spider on queen annes lace
They wait there in that stance, and when a flying insect lands to collect pollen, the spider grabs them.

This is a very cool challenge -- an opportunity to learn as well as shoot! I hope some others are out there seeking out bugs! I'm running out of things in my yard, I'll have to go to a park soon :-)
