I've been entranced by a wicked-looking spider!
I first noticed this green lynx spider (Peucetia viridans) out in my marigold cover crop on September 10th when she'd bent the marigold leaves together with her silk. I left this section of marigolds in place and built wide rows on either side for our fall crops.
|I first noticed this spider on 09/10/16 out in the marigolds as she seemed to have created a cocoon with marigold leaves.
|Look at how much fatter she is on 09/27/16,
as she sucks the juices from her yellow jacket prey.
