Phidippus Jumping Spider with aphid victim

Phidippus Jumping Spider with aphid victim

The small Phidippus Jumper has just captured an adult Brown Aphid. The capture occurred as I was composing this shot, and it was over before I realized what was happening. Numerous Brown Aphids are infesting our bed of Black-eyed Susans, so I appreciate that the Jumping Spiders are helping control the "pests".
