As If Honey Bees Didn't Have Enough to Worry About
The pink and white crab spiders also known as flower spiders spin their webs in flowers catching hapless pollinators. These beautiful spiders come in a variety of colors and are a bit of the chameleon of the spider world. This one is duplicating the beauty of the pink lily. They can also be more yellow, brown, tan, and even shades of red. I think this is the most beautiful spider I have ever seen. Needless to say, the bee probably didn't share my enthusiasm. Reading that they will even attack humans if they perceive them as a threat and will eat mosquitos; this time I am glad I was not first in line.
