Walking near the Arve river earlier this week, looking for flowers or insects to shoot, I came face to face with this little character (Misumena vatia, I believe) who positioned himself at the edge of the flower (common knapweed?) and seemed to just DARE me to take even one step closer! The white on the face with the dark eyes (?) and the position of the four front legs made him look as if he was really annoyed… I was going to include him in a post on spiders I’ve seen on recent walks but decided he deserved his own post.
