Spider Breakfast

macro photograph of a spider eating a beetle

Walking through the woods one morning I found this spider having breakfast.

I don’t know much about spider identification but I believe this may be an American House Spider (Parasteatoda Tepidariorum), also known as the Cobweb Spider.

Unlikely Fisherman

photograph of a spider sitting on a leaf in a pool of water

Five of the eight legs of this spider were on the surface of a small pool of water.  The other three were resting on a leaf floating on the surface.  At first I thought this spider had been stranded on the leaf but I later realized it was probably waiting there for lunch to come along.
