Spider Symmetry
"Western Lynx Spider"
Oxyopes scalaris

Western Lynx Spider
I watched this Western Lynx Spider at Red Butte Garden that was perched upside-down on the side of a rose and
after a while a large bee landed up above. The spider immediately jumped up over the edge but it wasn't quite
quick enough, or the bee was not the kind it wanted for lunch. Right after that, it resumed its place and struck this
symmetrical pose while it waited for another insect.  I guess it could have been meditating.  © Carol Davis 6-8-2015
