I can’t seem to find the spider here. Am I missing something?
On the white flower there is a brown, white, and yellow arthropod. I think it is an Ambush Bug, https://bugguide.net/node/view/266425 rather than a spider. The link I added is to the info page about Ambush Bugs on Bugguide.net. They’re pretty cool insects.
Oh, wow. Like the Weedy Seadragon of insects, then.
Yes, exactly! I like how it mimics the reproductive parts of the plant and the pollen too. It made a very poor choice for a flower to mimic though..
Tahaha! Could have fooled me. It did seem anomalous but I couldn’t see it as anything but more plant material.
