Yellow Crab Spider

Leave a comment

A yellow crab spider with its prey. These spiders hunt on flowers and grab the insects that come. They usually camouflage themselves on yellow flowers but this one chose a purple thistle. For those of you versed in color theory, you will remember that purple and yellow are complementary, meaning they are opposite in hue. The yellow stood out against the purple and caught my eye as I wandered by.
