Surprising spider attack immortalized on video
"That day I grabbed my camera and went to the garden wall where I made most of my spider shots. Then I saw this little web spinner busy with his prey. As that moment was so precious, I decided to take a video shot first ..."That wall top was the hunting zone for the jumping spiders. While I was filming the spider spinning around the ant, I saw a jumper approaching from the left. You can see my camera trying to turn left with a hesitation. At the time I firstly planned to focus [on] the jumper but suddenly came the idea to keep focus on the spinner as there might be a nice ending there. And then came the big hit. The result was more awesome than I expected :)"The jumper got his prey and left. I tried to rescue the ant after the incident. But it was too late for the poor ant."
