I didn’t see this little guy before I looked through my lens. (S)he is very tiny and just the right color to miss. The fly wrapped in spider webbing I saw on the petal later didn’t see her either.
The spider has to pretty much be in the moment. We expect that of spiders. And flowers – and you know what? I took that photo yesterday. Today the petals are all but gone – the one with the wrapped fly is there – and the spider is gone. Dinner for one for one day, maybe two. It’s a magnolia so what’s coming next are leaves, flowers all gone.
The leaves are deep green. I’m going to be looking for a greener spider in the coming days. I bet I’ll find him.
