Dangerously Alluring Beauty


I went for another walk in the Missouri woods with my camera and noticed something new among the thistles.

This yellow and black spider was strategically positioned and patiently waiting to strike insects who may be attracted to the colorful thistle.

If you look closely at the image above, it looks like some of the thistle is twisted in strands to the side – giving the spider easier access to any prey that might land on the top of the flower. Is the spider smart enough to make an easier path to the kill or is it just a naturally occurring coincidence?  I wonder.

The photo to the right show another spider snugly tucked deep in the strands of the thistle.  Waiting…waiting…waiting…

Now that I look at them, maybe I should have waited to see and document what happens.  It might have taken a long time with me just a few inches from the blossoms.  The spiders are more patient than I am.
