Which Are Scarier: Spiders or Bees?
This photo is especially for Nature Girl, author of the wonderful blog Adirondack Naturalist (www.adknaturalist.blogspot.com). In her comment to my post about beautiful bugs, she let on that in the past she had a great fear of bees. Turnabout's fair play, so here's a photo of something the bee should be afraid of: a goldenrod crab spider, with jaws sunk into the bee. The murder scene is a shining sumac bush. Be sure to click on this photo to get all the (not so) gory details. (Just think how close I had to get to take this picture!)
