The itsy bitsy spider

I’m not sure what kind of spider this is.  It was in a bee balm plant in my mom’s garden tonight.  Kinda gross, huh?!

    Eww.. I hate spiders… but its kinda pretty compared to the hairy, dark spiders that I hate most.

    I think this is a Goldenrod Crab Spider, but I’m not positive.

    Took me a while to see it, I could see the bee but the spider took a bit of concentration to find.

    My sister looked it up in her spider book (didn’t know she had one!) after I gave her a description, and she found something called a flower spider. After looking online here, I think Sean and her are both right. Looks like they are the same type of spiders with different names. Gross at any rate! I will look at the bookstore while in town today to see if I can find out for sure. I just love my camera!

    Great pictures! Don’t get me started with spiders this week! I woke up Monday morning on the couch, which is a story all in its own, with a bite of some sort on my left hand. I am assuming it is a spider bite. It looks nasty but it doesn’t really hurt just burns every now and then. If it’s not better by next week I will probably break down and go to the doctor!

  8. It’s a pretty spider! Looks kinda exotic and rare. But it still creeps me out.
