Camoflage

It struck me as odd, the way this little bee was sitting so still on the pumpkin blossom. When I bent down for a closer look, I could see that the bee had been captured by a little spider, the same shade of yellow as the blossom. It occurred to me that I have seen this same species of spider in shades of green, brown, and even an almost purple/blue shade depending on the color of the plant they were resting on. An interesting little creature indeed.

You will have to click on the picture if you want to see the little yellow spider.
