Goldenrod Spider and Bumble Bee
Walking through the garden at the end of the day I saw a large white something and a very large bumble bee working on a chive flower. It seemed odd to find a bumble bee still at work so late in the day. When I went over to investigate I was shocked to find that the white something was a large Goldenrod spider feasting on the unsuspecting Bumble Bee. Notice his tongue still extended, presumably caught by surprise while collecting nectar.
I had never seen a Goldenrod spider in my garden, since then I have seen many, perhaps offspring?
