The spider catches the fly. This is a jumping or zebra spider, one of my favourites. It has eyes like headlamps and you really do feel it is watching you. But not this one, it was too busy with the fly it had just stalked and caught. No web, just sheer cunning and strength. Just like lions hunting prey 2 or 3 times their weight, except they hunt in a pride, this spider hunts alone on a wall in my garden.
