When I first spotted this tiny spider I thought perhaps it was a baby Yellow and Black Garden Spider that would change color of legs to black etc as it matured. It was in a close proxcimity to a yellow and black, hence my fatal mistake in misidentification. The green legs are amazing.

Oh my goodness Raiyan Ahmed, I am honored to have you favor this picture. Your spottings are out of this world. What camera and lenses do you use? I would love to get some tips from you if you are so willing.
