  1. I love crab spiders but the cute face on the jumping spider is best. And love the pollen on the chafer.

  2. Judy, I agree that the jumping spider is a cutey! Sometimes the bold jumping spider has orange spots!

  3. I had a great little yellow crab spider on my coreopsis catch a pretty gray geometer moth the other day but I didn't get a picture. good stuff!!
