spider eating robberfly
I was walking by one of my flower beds and happened to see this spider grab a Robber Fly. I was wondering what kind of spider it is. I only got the one picture before the spider ran away dragging his meal along with him. I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks…..

Hi Marsha,
This is a Jumping Spider in the genus Phidippus. It might be Phidippus apacheanus, a female.
