MOST RECENT

A demonstration of my poor impulse control, lol.

I went out and got a couple of younger Goldenrod Crab Spiders to add to my little spider family. Originally I only planned to get three, however apparently as I was catching the bugger of the three, two newborn babies hitchhiked into the cup along with it, so now I have five of them.
I am going to be getting some bigger cages prepped for them all soon, so no, they will not be staying in deli-cups (except for the newborns, I might keep them in deli-cups for now since they are extremely tiny and haven't even gotten their colors yet).
Can't wait to be able to observe these gorgeous spiders! Will be picking up food for them all tomorrow.

Misumena vatia (flower spider) on the underside of a plum branch in one of Lopez' ancient orchards. These colorful crab spiders are more commonly found in flowers waiting to catch visiting insects.

This is the most girly animal I’ve ever seen in real life 💕🕷💕 #misumena

#spidercrabweek doesn't have to mean closeups, right?

This is a tiny goldenrod crab spider (Misumena vatia), currently in yellow-green colour, hanging on at the very top of a spiked speedwell (Veronica spicata) while waiting for lunch to drop by. Photo from 2011 taken using a 2004 Pentax *ist DS and the kit lens.

Although I might receive some hate...Misumena vatia (Veränderliche Krabbenspinne/Goldenrod crab spider) taking a stroll on Daucus carota subsp. carota (Wilde Möhre/Wild carrot).
They eat wasps so...maybe don't hate them too much...

While wandering through Big Meadows I noticed a moth poking out from behind a milkweed leaf at a curious angle. Working on proper id, but I am leaning towards misumena.

Olin taas kerran katsomassa tähtiputkia ja sieltä löytyi joku muukin, kukkahämähäkki, kaunis koiras 😍 Nämä näin pienet ovat vielä ok...

Ich betrachtete wieder Sterndolden und da war's auch Misumena Spinne, ein schönes Männchen 😍

One video & a few photos of two #crabspiders , the last few being of each catching their prey. They don’t spin webs but wait in flowers for victims and are capable of changing color to match some flowers, camouflaging themselves. Just phone photos, but I’m happy. 💚🦀🕷🌼 #myfavoritespider #crabspider #misumena #flowercrabspider #flowerspider #ip_insects #oregoncoast
