The spider who (could have) swallowed the fly(ies)

2 04 2009

To give you a sense of scale, the out-of-focus bud at the bottom is about 1/2 inch in diameter. That means this is a pretty tiny spider, albeit quite a long-legged one! I haven’t been able to identify it yet. This spider was initially inside a bud right near the “trysting flies” I posted about earlier. Fortunately for the amorous flies, I don’t think he knew they were so close by. (Or did he?) Lots of activity going on in that bed of Hellebores!
