Bark Crab Spider II  (two photos)

tough guy spider
I would never kill a Crab Spider.  They are slow-moving and non-aggressive--just what a Arachnophobe could endure.  I consider them
to be good luck and certainly a tough opponent for any other creepy bug that might live in your house. © Carol Davis, 9-11-2008

crab spider
This was a small spider so I'm not sure if it was an immature male or a female but it was very handsome.  It seemed to be sewing
 on a shirtsleeve button so it could very well have been a female.   © Carol Davis, 9-11-2008
