Yes! Did you know she can change colors? What her eyes see triggers pigmented fluids to shift in her body to match. I had fun photographing one in her various color chanes. She turned tan to match her egg sac. She was gorgeous on a red rose bush. This species can match shades and chroma of yellow, green, browns, reds, purple, black. In this photo, this is the first time I’ve seen two colors in the reflective dorsal markings. They are usually very pale green, but your spider made them yellow and red. Cool!
