With apologies to Freddie.
In between showers I found this lonely White-banded Crab Spider-Misumenoides formosipes longingly waiting for somebody, anybody to hug. Unfortunately for this fly, the spider wanted more than a hug.
No longer lonely…or hungry
Crab spiders kill by biting and injecting a poison into their prey. Then they suck them dry. Sounds horrid but that’s nature. No hard feelings.
How is this different from a Goldenrod Crab Spider-Misumena vatia? The white line or band behind the eyes is one notable difference. The spider is on a Kalanchoe that is almost blooming.
