Steph's Virtual Garden: Spiders
Crab spiders EAT butterflies, or at least slurp out their innards. It's wild, the spiders are so very small compared to many of the butterflies and moths they eat, but time and again now I've seen it, so I've given crab spiders their very own top section on my spider page so you can see some of the various flower crab spiders I've found. You may click the underlined spiders for the rest of the story and larger photographs. You may click the ones that aren't underlined too, but nothing will happen.
