Death becomes her by scrattletrap Death becomes her by scrattletrap
I saw this crab spider yesterday and was amazed by it, a little known fact is that even though they look white to us to other insects they are really brightly colours, no one knows why they are more attractive to the flies but they are, and then they are dinner. The spider is called a Misumena vatia.

An oldie, but a goodie. Didn't we have this printed out and framed somewhere? I haven't seen it in a while
