Goldenrod Spider with Fiery Skipper

Misumena vatia


A small white crab spider, with three buffy markings on the abdomen. This one caught a male Fiery Skipper on my lantana plant. The Fiery skipper is a common butterfly found throughout the south.

It is not quite often when the prey is larger than the predator! What a find!
