Here’s a full-on picture of the very strange white spider in my last upload, now kindly (and rather gruesomely…) identified as a White Death spider or Crab spider.
The bulbous body has indents which looks like a distorted human face, with eyes, nose, and mouth. , Rather similar to my least favourite painting, ‘The Scream’ by Eduard Munsch ;-)
A very windy day and this was hand-held, so hard to get hin/her absolutely sharp.
I’ve just been out asking the wood pigeons to pick him/her off soon, as they are really quite sinister-looking little beasties, and according to the link on my previous upload, they can single-handedly (or leggedly) kill a bumblebee! Scary little beastie. I may send it to ‘Spider Heaven’ if it is still there, as I don’t fancy it being in my garden taking out the bumblebees…..
