Found this spider by the edge of a stream. She was waiting for the hapless victim - a struggling insect, a small fish or a tadpole.
There were many Water Striders( Gerridae) all around her. I was eagerly waiting for the her to catch a Water Strider which would sometimes come very close to her. But she didn't seem to be interested in them. I waited for more than 30 mins before I had to move on.
Maybe next time :-)
