FSOYTU- First Spider of the Year
in Taylorsville, Utah - Crab Spider
Genus Xysticus

crab spider
This is my first spider of the year (2016) in Taylorsville, Utah - I've seen some spiders elsewhere already. He's
been around while since he's mature and lost
one leg (possibly in some spider duel.)  He was probably snoozing
this winter behind my little tool shed. I hope he eats what we call "firebugs" because they are out already,
as well. I also saw some ladybugs today and lots of flies.  © Carol Davis 2-28-2016
