Yesterday I spotted a goldenrod crab spider hiding in chrysanthemums (top photo). Its bite is poisonous to insects but not harmful to humans other than to cause skin irritation. The bottom photo was taken a few years ago when this type of spider trapped one of our honeybees. For this reason I am not a fan of the goldenrod. I’ve only seen two of these spiders in the past five years, but the chances are I might have missed some due to their ability to change colors from white to yellow.
