Within a few hours, I stood eyeball to eyeball with two predators. Well, neither was after me; I am just too big for them.
One was a raccoon kit. Like the bobcat before it, it was checking out the corner with the bird feeders.
The second was a crab spider. It had been hunting for pollinators on a daisy the day before, but the light was getting low. So, knowing its habits, I went back this morning and found it looking up at me. It was whitish as it sat on the daisy’s petals, but I have seen it coloured yellow when sitting on the yellow portion of the flower.
