  1. Nice shots, Pete. On of my favorite arachnids
    I have seen just a couple of tiny crab spider around the garden this past month but it is still a bit early in the season for them, I think. Based on my records it’ll be a month or so before they are more prolific, and especially when the cosmos starts to flower.

    I hope we get some decent rain this year as well then maybe the Rain Spiders will turn up. I saw only a couple of specimens the whole of last year, but their nemesis, the Pompilid Wasp, seemed more abundant then usual.
