Jumping spider with prey

A camouflaged Menemerus species of jumping spider, with a male ant as prey. Camouflage is a form of crypsis, which is the ability of an organism to avoid observation or detection by other organisms. This is useful as an antipredator adaptation or in this case, a strategy employed by ambush predators.
