Cute … for a Spider

I chuckled when I saw this crab spider “staring” back at me. There’s the “hat” design, its face and even suspenders. The hat and face are on its abdomen and the suspenders on the thorax.

How cute!

It was patiently waiting for insects to visit the thistle flowers for a nectar meal.

I’m sure prey wouldn’t see any humor in the situation.

  1. Aaaw, this spider’s really cute!! I’ve never seen one like this before, I’d never thought I would use “cute” and “spider” in the same sentence 😀 Thank you for sharing this!
