I don’t mean to downgrade this little spider with the title, because I think he was catching insects detrimental to the flower. He posed very well for me, because he didn’t move the whole time I click, click, clicked and moved the flower trying to get close. I believe the flower is a pretty pink camelia.

    No, you got the title correct….those ugly little critters….love to squish ‘em! however, it’s a very nice image.

  • Nooooo…..don’t squish’em. I can’t stand to hear the squishing sound. Thank you my friend for the lovely comment. :))

    I promise to do it quietly!!!! :)

  • That’s ok Marsha. You can squish all you want. I just had to “mash” one that got up my pants leg and bit me a few minutes ago. It was teeny though…..didn’t squish.:)
