About Today’s Photo:

I went on a bug hunt yesterday morning and came across this crab spider lurking in a mallow blossom below our patio garden. She was just waiting to ambush the the right sized pollinator…

  1. Is it because of Charlotte that spiders are she? Or is the blackwidow? There’s a big difference isn’t there?!

    • I usually assume that most spiders I see are female as, I think, the males are only around long enough to breed. Might be wrong though… Have been before!
