Inchworm Comouflaged Himself

.... what happens when both predator and prey encounter each other in full camouflage?

The predator in this drama, witnessed by a naturalist at the edge of a desert, is a yellow crab spider. The spider was waiting on a yellow flower that made him nearly invisible.

The potential prey is an inchworm beneath the same flower. The inchworm was tearing off bits of the yellow flower petals and sticking them on its back. Properly camouflaged, the inchworm then worked his way toward the top of the flower where the spider waited. Read or listen to the entire article.

We have Goldenrod Spiders in our garden and they can change colors like chameleons, so it's fun to watch scenarios like these in the micro-world of God's gardens.
