Is that a Portia spider?

Where'd you find her?

I bet wandering spiders think their web-weaving brethren are all a bunch of pussies. "HELP MY WEB IS SHAKING AND I CAN'T SEE SHIT"

That said, I probably sound crazy saying it, but that jumping spider seems kind of cute to me. For having eight eyes and legs at least.

Spiders are territorial and fratricidal, especially being obligate predators that must kill and eat the living to survive. Thus, this scene is actually quite common in their world.

Oh man. I feel like such a weirdo, but they both look very cute. I know what's ACTUALLY going on is well, life and death (or is it?) but it kind of looks like they're cuddling :)
Big spider eyes are really cute to me haha.

No, the big one is a Jumping spider (I guess Clynotis severus or something similar)and the smaller one looks like a member of the Genus Araneus (perhaps Araneus cavaticus). ;)
