Priscilla – I use the DH’s DSLR camera with a macro lens to get good close ups – in fact he took that shot of the spider. It was still not as sharp as it could be becuase the darm allium kept swinging from the wind. DH will probably try again as spidey seems to live on that allium now.
I put some info about my camera and lenses here: http://gardentherapy.ca/old-and-new/

Heather and Grace – He caught a bee yesterday and ate it head first which was both gruesome and fascinating. I’m not sure I like him any more. I’m torn. I love both bees AND spiders.

Maybe I can train him to eat only yellow jackets….

I’ve never seen such a cool looking crab spider in person. I live in Phoenix and have seen plenty of giant crab spiders, they are gross looking. The white one you found actually looks pretty on the flower- great photo!

Thanks, Marie! Yes, the goldenrod spider is pretty, but the ones you have are really not. yick!
