This pretty crab spider has been an outdoor companion for over a month. I loved going out and trying to find where he was hiding. He seemed to travel from the roof to the little yellow flowers on our porch. My kids liked to make a careful check prior to running outside, as sometimes he would be a little too close for comfort, in their opinion.
Last night, I went out into the backyard long after the sun had gone down. I like to leave the lights off so as to enjoy the night skies and find a little peace. I never gave him a second thought.
I went to open the screen door and IT happened; as I pushed the thumb button that opens the door, I felt a little smush. Yikes!
*sob* I loved that spider.
Until next time, don't forget to look!
