The Misumenops Crab Spider
vs.
the Unsuspecting Small Wood-Nymph

I took this picture thinking this butterfly was being very cooperative.  Later, after I left the area and was reviewing my shots, I saw that
this Small Wood-Nymph butterfly was a "captive" audience.  Luckily there were thousands of other wood-nymphs in the area, which
was just a few miles from Bryce Canyon National Park, to keep the population going.  © Carol Davis, 7-9-2008
