I think they are is season huh?
There are lots and lots of them around where I live, but not as colourful as this one! He blends in with the flower! Ewwww!

Those spiders almost give me the creeps more than the hairy ones! By the way, it is a wonderful photo.

Love that spider..do you know what kind it is?

This looks like what I have heard called a, "Crab Spider," but I am not sure that is its proper name. I am too lazy this morning to look it up.

It is a nice photo and the Asters steal the stage so he is hardly even noticed. Nice photography.

I think spidey is trying to be incognito, but you found him. Beautiful!

see you there! said...

How well that spider matches the color in the Aster. I suppose it is some kind of camouflage.

Wow, gorgeous photo! A couple more steps for that spider and he'd be totally camoflauged!

I haven't noticied the spyder on the thumbnail, but I really felt like seeing the bigger picture. Very nice shot!

That is one of those crab spiders that wait patiently and blen inon flowers and then they attack their prey (ant, fly) and while we enjoy the flowers they enjoy a meal. LOL!!
that looks like a daisy flower I used to paint on my face in my 'happenin' youth. MB
