Clever Little Spider

Look closely at the following photo. At first glance it looks like nothing more than a bee on a flower. That’s what I thought when I snapped the shot. But, after getting home and looking at it on a larger screen I noticed something…


That bee is in some big trouble!!! This appears to be a Goldenrod Crab Spider (or Flower Spider) and it has caught this small bee by surprise.

  1. Great shot of the spider in stealth mode — quite amazing how quickly the venom acts. I recently posted pics of a large bumblebee that met a similar fate. It’s a dangerous world out there. 🙂
