Crab Spider

These little guys seem to come in a variety of colours, and from what I’ve read they actually change colour to match their background!  What reminded me that I had these pictures was a recent post by Fodrambler at   ‘A Tramp in the Woods’   He has a wonderful nature blog. You can how his crab spider has changed its camouflage to green.

  1. Hey, thanks for the plug. Lovely to see your spider. Those are good sharp shots and I can’t wait to see what you do with the new camera. It is kinda wonderful getting a new camera, technology just advances so quick and the new one is always so much better. Great pictures. – Colin 🙂


    • Thanks Colin – now I can stop calling you ‘Fod’ Hopefully I’ll be able to post a few utterly brilliant shots when the new camera arrives later next week! 🙂


  2. I absolutely agree Jeff. I really have a phobia about spiders. I can pick up virtually any creepy-crawly, or snake or bat, but I run a mile from spiders especially the huge black hairy monsters that appear from under a chair in the evening and do an Olympic dash across the carpet! This little guy was quite beautiful in his own way.


    • Thanks Amy, I’d love to find more species of spiders to photograph – excluding the big black ones that appear like magic when you’re watching TV in the evening. Those get a sieve slapped over them till hubby can deport them into the woods!


I'd love your Thoughts!
