Spider Fight!

In the left corner, weighing in at, uh, next-to-nothing is Araneus diadematus

Just before leaving for soccer last weekend we noticed a pair of spiders duking it out in the front yard. I rushed back in the house to grab my macro lens and tripod and snapped away. I assumed this was a fight to the death but after reading up a little bit online it looks like this may have been spider mating behavior.

I’m glad this isn’t the case for humans…
