Grumpy?
Looks to me like a very high brow conductor in front of his orchestra.
Well, yes, and grumpy too!
Sharp shot!

Those four beady eyes staring at you with legs extended as a warning do make it grumpy. Nice capture and title.

Grumpy is a perfect description - this guy's got a chip on his . . . . . . shoulders! Super catch, Dave.

Grumpy is what first came to mind when I looked at it. Thanks for your comments Angky, Mike and Jer. Always appreciated.

Great macro Dave! I really like the choice of black & white for this little guy. I have photographed a few of these and they sure like to bluff with those front legs.

Thanks Todd. It does seem like a common defense posture.

Female Crab Spiders can get really big. Plus, some species change colors! Nice shot.

Thanks TER-OR. The ones we have around here can change their color. This one is yellow to match the petals of this Black-eyed Susan. Pretty cool.

Yeah, you'll start seeing them everywhere once you find them.

Here's what the big girls look like fully grown.


Small in the spring - the Andrena bees are at most 1cm long.


I'm not completely sure what's going on on here, but it's probably a female consuming a male.
