hungry spiders

Female green jumping spider and an orb spider that she wants to eat.

She has her fangs out and ready.

This one will stay in the web.

A third critter comes into the picture.

I think it may be a soldier beetle larva.  The spider did not want any part of that.

She can clearly see the larva

If you look closely, you can see the venom  on her fangs.  She really wants that other spider.

She finally decided that it was just to big a leap and went away.
