These are my favorite spiders, I've spent alot of time photograping and oberving them..I've never seen one eat another of the species though.
Great job on the color, POV, detail, and overall composition..

Life is tough sometimes, even for spiders. Great composition and focus. I like the subdued lighting. It gives a nice mood to the image.

Great details once again - the hairs on their legs and the beady little eyes - very good!!
And you managed another action shot. It reminds me of one of those shows on the National Geographic channel. :)

In the struggle for survival, nothing matters except survival, HP. Charles Darwin did have a point there!
A very impressive capture showing the two different species of spiders "struggling" it out. Apparently, the fitter of the two would survive.
Very fine compo and rich colours.
Well done and TFS.

Great scene showing the raw facts of life (including human commerce!).
Good sharp details of both the spiders. The larger one is definitely a female: I wonder if she is eating her lover? Female spiders have this tendency.

Destaco la profundidad... enorme. Impresionante toma de este arácnido que nunca había visto. La composición , como en casi todas tus fotografías, muy buena, así como la luz. Buena pose con las patas levantadas de la araña más grande. Saludos.

What a great capture this was for you as well as the Lynx Spider.
Pity for the jumping spider ofcourse, but that's what wildlife is all about as you already did mention in your great note.
Perfect sharpness and composition while colors and details are wonderful.
Pity the part of the leaf behind the Lynx Spider is a little harsh lighted and therefore does attrackt the eye to much.
Nevertheless a very beautiful image and the lighter part of the leaf gould easely be darkened a bit in photoshop.
Thanks for sharing.
P/S Sorry, but out of :) will be back tomorrow.
Splendid action scene captured with very impressive sharpness. The subjects stand out well against the green leaf BG and I like the lighting. Excellent POV to portray this poignant scene and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Not often I see a spider being eaten by another spider, most interesting!
Action well captured in this fine macro shot, good point of view...
A well composed presentation, rich natural colours and sharp fine details!
