How a crab spider hides

On windy days the crab spider needs a way to stay on her chosen flower but not get blown off. Although she is an ambush predator she can also spin web as needed so she uses her web to hold down enough petals to make a home for herself. So it is easy to find crab spiders on a windy day and you are in a field of daisies; just look for the petals standing up!

Normally white, this crab spider has the ability to turn yellow which is a perfect camouflage as she sits on the yellow daffodil. Crab Spider, Spiders, Daffodils, Camouflage, Yellow, Color, Military Camouflage, Spider, Colour

If you enlarge photo and look closely at on the yellow center of flower you will see a happy aphid. I can almost hear his teeny tiny "hello hello"! Crab Spider, Enlarge Photos, Hello Hello, See It, Spiders, Canning, Yellow, Happy, Flowers

Looks more like a golf ball!!!!!

Thinks he's so ferocious. He stands right up to me and waves his "claws" around if I get too close. It's hard to be afraid of a creature who wears pink spots. Crab Spider, Attitude Is Everything, Spiders, Claws, Flowers, How To Wear, Waves, Pink, Spider
