A SPIDER WITH A TOOTHACHE

in nature •  15 days ago

There's even a place in the garden where these guys blend in!


Appreciating the plants and animals of the world is a great hobby of mine that I really enjoy. Today we reaped another harvest from our garden, and I noticed something interesting.

It seemed that a small butterfly massacre had occurred. The wings of at least two butterflies were laying in the toothache plant, which lead me to begin an investigation

There, hiding behind a leaf, was a most peculiar little spider. With the brilliant yellow coloration, one may not think he'd have much of chance at blending in, but the yellow flowers of the toothache plant provided that perfect hiding place.

He may have killed a few pollinators, based on circumstantial evidence, but I returned him to the flowers after the photo shoot anyway. I suppose he'll take care of some garden pests the next time he's hungry. Here's the photos, enjoy!

YELLOW SPIDER = YELLOW FLOWER

Spider story aside for just a minute. What is a toothache plant? I started to look it up but them I said "nope, gonna find out right here." Is it medicinal or more like a jawbreaker? Take it or Make it!

I'm afraid of spiders but I have to admit that yellow spider it's cute, it reminded me of the villain "Yellow Jacket" from the first "Ant-Man" movie hahaha

This year was our first time.

Ha! Very cool little guy (or girl ??).

Brilliantly coloured indeed. Must have been odd just seeing the butterfly wings with no butter fly lol.

Omg this is art men ..... i don’t like spiders but this is an amazing creature greetings from greece

Those pictures are awesome. Specially the spider. It looks so cute you know.

I frickin love spiders lol i used to have a pet one called him "peter parker"

He blends in perfectly! Poor unsuspecting butterflies! I hope he eats other insects besides butterflies.

It's a pretty one. :-)

He is really beautiful - and so nicely photographed - you have a very artistic eye for good composition 😍 I am catching up late after losing internet for four hours - it’s a jungle down here!

Holy Guacamole!!!!!
What a scary looking spider! Although, I do LOVE it’s colors :-)

That’s a pretty crab spider 🕷
