    One of things this kind of photo can do is add information to the life history and habits. This looks a little like algae (?) so maybe these spiders learned to hunt where prey would have a hard time running away???

  • that’s so right and yes, it was algae. thank you for the comment ;)

    Haha, yes I know what you mean. I put a ladder across my pond for a similar reason. :)

  • I guess we are acrobats when it’s time to take a good shot. lol
