Friday Spider

Now that the goldenrod is blooming I've been looking for a yellow goldenrod crab spider doing what its name suggests it should. This morning I found one, mature, yellow and working the goldenrod--just in time to board the Friday Ark.

Misumena vatia and prey
If it hadn't been for the fly in her jaws I probably wouldn't have seen her.

Now I must check the goldenrod at Roundrock. Yet another reason to head down there this Sunday.

What a fine picture! I must look for such a spider when my goldenrod blooms next month!
