Crab spiders do not build webs? :shock: Female (here on the Foeniculum flower buds), can be red, yellow or gold up to 6mm, males are black up to 4mm.

Hmm...either she constructed that web or highjacked it from another spider. I never knew that they did not construct webs but then again I seldom pry into the private lives of spiders, though I do photograph them from time to time. Nice image you have here Nikola. :D

Great shot Nikola...beautiful girl she is :wink: I don`t know about the web thing but I did see one in a rolled up leaf near a flower one time. the leaf was webbed into a roll and a crab spider was lurking inside the leaf ready to ambush anything the came close.

I believe that although crab spiders(Thomisidae) dont build webs as such they still produce silk, as do all spiders.

Nice photo!
