Have you ever seen a Goldenrod Crab Spider? I hadn’t!

These Goldenrod Crab spiders are about 3/8″ and hide in flowers, snatching insects.

I saw this one on a Bedstraw wildflower. I took a “double take” because I couldn’t understand what was yellow on this white flower.

It was the spider. It changes color every 5-7 days between yellow and white and lives in gardens and meadows.

Have you ever seen one?

    Good Heavens, Mel, there seems to be no end to creation’s producing every imaginable form of creature, and they all seem to inhabit your magical home place. Bless you for sharing these with me. I keep looking forward to receiving the species of the day.

    That is phenomenal. A bright yellow spider in the Rocky Mountains that looks exactly like it should be prowling on rockweed in a tide pool here in Maine.
