    I found a butterfly lying on the ground under a yellow flower in our garden. When I looked at the flower, something moved...slightly. It was a yellow spider with red stripes. At a glance it looked like part of the flower. I took this shot and enhanced the contrast, or the spider would be nearly invisible. It's called a crab spider and can actually change color depending on the color of the flower. It waits for butterflies and traps them with the longer crab-like claws in the front. Wow.
