Interesting Goldenrod Crab Spider facts:  Goldenrod Crab Spiders are “hunters.”  They don’t spin webs.  Instead they wait, without moving, on the bloom of a flower.  Because of their ability to change color, they blend in quite well.  When an insect gets near, they grab it with their strong front legs and eat it immediately.

In the spring of 1988, I returned to New Orleans, and as soon as I smelled the air, I knew I was home.  It was rich, almost sweet, like the scent of jasmine and roses around our old courtyard.  I walked the streets, savoring that long lost perfume. ~ Anne Rice, Interview with the Vampire
