Crab spider

Catching this orchid beetle and crushing it lead to finding the crab spider.

I frightened this crab spider into jumping with a safety line.   This is after it climbed back onto the petal.

It's tail looks like a pie shell that has been pinched along the edge to stick it together.

It got much more difficult  after the spider let out about two inches of web and hung under the petal.

It was swinging and spinning in the wind.

I got a look at it's pretty face.

The cloud cover was making it dark by the time I got this shot.
