Caption: Jumping spider catching prey. Coloured environmental scanning electron micrograph (ESEM) of a jumping spider (family: Salticidae) with its insect prey caught in its legs. Spiders typically feed on flies and mosquitoes. The spider's eyes (ocelli) are at top centre. Ocelli cannot focus or see in colour, but are very good at detecting differences in light intensity. A spider's main sensory apparatus is the sensory bristles (setae) covering its body.
