Running Crab Spider - Part I
Tibellus "Slender Crab Spider"

tibellus crab spider
This Slender Crab Spider in the genus Tibellus was on a cement bridge on the Antelope Island Causeway.  I think the only reason I got this
photo is because the spider had only seven legs.  I'd never seen a Tibellus quite like this one.  It resembles the one below in some respects
but definitely is a different species.  © Carol Davis, 6-22-2008

blends in with the reeds of the wetlands. © Carol Davis, 6-28-07
