NOTE: The fly ID information is not very important for this Jumping Spider's ID. Only so much can be seen of it here. I have more images, but they are not as clear and they do not show any more views of this fly.

Moving With Spider Images
John, I've looked at many of the images in those families and I didn't see anything that could help me to match this fly. I think that the wings and the leg hairs are just a little too blurred out here and there is not enough body parts visible, to be of much value. Anyway, I found your comments about the "bubble blowing" & the scars to be very interesting and I hope that I can remember some of the Bubble-licious taxonomy! Thanks a lot for your time and the family info too. I'm moving these images on to the spider page. OK, I just added another fly to my filming target list and please email me, if you have any favorites, in any central Arizona, desert species, because I will hunt him or her down for you...well, I promise to try anyway! Thanks
