Tiny Breakfast

I was planning on finding some sort of interesting food that I could use for this weeks Tiny Tuesday challenge of "food".  And then along came the tiniest of jumping spiders dragging his breakfast across the flower petal.  How could I possibly resist?  I recently brought two pots of rudbeckia (black-eyed Susans) home with plans to put them in the garden.  They are pollinator magnets, especially the tiny hoverflies.  And, they seem to have come with some resident wee spiders - lucky me.  Not sure what type of jumper this is, but it was too tiny for me to see well even with a macro lens and a 36mm extension tube.  So, since I couldn't really see what I was shooting, I'm pretty pleased with the result.

Hubs and I went for a nice long walk after lunch.  And, apparently, while we were gone a bear came along and took down three feeders.  One is totally destroyed but I was able to salvage the other two.  Sigh.  Damn bears.

I'm having some computer problems today, so ended up emailing this image to my iPad so I could post.  Working on a fix so that I can properly view all of the TT113 entries on a big screen.  I will announce my picks on Thursday, so stay tuned.  


PS thanks so much for sending my hummer to the Pops page!
