Watched this particular fellow scan underneath the siding of my house.
Locked onto this spider and it was all over in a flash.
You can actually see limbs flying in the third.

Great action sequence. It's actually not a spider, but a harvestman - an arachnid, but not a spider.

Great captures! Agree with Troy that it's a harvestman ;)

Probably made a great meal for the bee (I think it may be a yellow jacket, or maybe a hornet?) great series!

Great shot! What lens did you use, & is it hand held?
