Here's some photos of Crab or Flower spider photos
sent in by one of my viewers. Thanks for the photos and interesting
commentary. Click each photo for a larger view.
The following, on Misumena vatia spiders, can be put in your web
site, if you would like. These are pictures that I had taken myself.
I have other nice spider pics that I can provide at a later time, if
you would like. Thomas.
Crab spiders (Flower spiders), Misumena vatia, can change their
colors similar to the way that chameleons do. They often reside
within flowers, waiting for nectar-seeking insects (such as bees and
butterflies) to come looking for a meal. These spiders are usually
white, yellow, or green... though I have seen reddish ones and dark
(black/brown) colored ones. It takes a few days to change their
colors. Needless to say, probably more than one or two housewives
have put an arrangement of flowers, from the garden, in a vase on
the dining-room table... not realizing that they have brought in
some invisible chameleonic spiders!
