Artist's Description

and, as in the story, this beast is good and misunderstood, protecting the rosebuds from aphids …. I took a photo of a closed bud covered in what appeared to be dead aphids, zooming in on the photo revealed them trapped in what appears to be cobweb and they appear to be hollow husks ….. it could explain the green colour of this well-fed spider ……
