_MG_0317 Little Spider

This little spider is about a half inch across from leg tip to leg tip. I was surrounded by dozens of bees when I shot this. Neither the bee nor I was intimidated. I think if I don't move suddenly I'm fine. Maybe I'm naive! (It's sitting on a garlic chive blossom. Garlic chives generously reseed themselves and make a beautiful ground cover, as well as provide tasty accents for food.)

This little spider is beautiful. It is a boss in the art of the camouflage ! It's an interesting picture.

Cute. :-) They rely on their camouflage, which typically isn't very good, obviously. Still, they seem to get along...
