Took a walk around the block, caught up with some spider friends #DailySpiderPic 🐘
A very cool find from the other day: a pirate spider, _Mimetus puritanus_ (family Mimetidae). As the name suggests, they prey on other spiders. I found this one usurping an orbweaver spiderling's tiny web.
There's a fenced-off vacant property in my neighbourhood with a lawn that is basically waist-high now. I was walking past thinking, "see, this is the perfect habitat for spiders," when I saw a bold jumper emerge from a hole in the fence to take a look around! #DailySpiderPic 🐘
A very satisfying outing yesterday. Saw many spiders including the new crop of bridge spiders, mating mesh-web weavers, mating long-jawed orbweavers, and this "lifer", dwarf spider _Hypselistes florens_.
