Seeing this katydid on the hood of the car made me think about camouflage. Not working in this setting obviously.
A few minutes after the above katydid shots this creature (a crab spider--doesn't spin a web, btw) caught my eye and I thought 'no camouflage going on here, how's that going to work?'
Well I found out the next day. Often flowers have contrasting colors which perhaps attracts critters so maybe that's this spider's technique because it pretty much stands out.
The next day I checked on the spider and while plenty of prey was in the area none got completely in range. Pretty close a couple of times
