Crabby and his catch

Crabby and his catch!


My local crab spider, whom I've blogged about before (http://ryans-garden.blogspot.com/2009/05/snow-white-beauty.html) has now moved, as the bluebells have come to the end of their flowering period, and is now living within the Strawberries.  I have seen another on my Viburnum, and that one has green legs, but don't tell Crabby.

Anyway, I spotted Crabby feasting on a hover-fly which looked far too large for him to eat and I haven't seen him since.  I guess  he's resting after such a goliath meal!

  1. Great photo - I love crab spiders (unlike house spiders) but haven't seen any this year yet.

  3. That spider is certainly a camelian, huh? Great he takes on the color of his environment.

  4. Is it just me, or does he have a smiley face on his back??

  5. Hate wildlife!
    Have been bitten today by three horseflies.
    Yesterday was found by a tick!
    Enough!

  6. Robert, I don't believe for a second that you hate wildlife. You're just extremely attractive to the insect kingdom!

    Horseflies and Ticks are not the nicest of customers though.
