First, Happy Birthday Sister! :D My sister over at Amanda Ward Photography is celebrating her birthday today! Check out her beautiful birth photography, and wish her a happy birthday.
Second, my friend Ashley is convinced that we found Charlotte, or at least one of her descendants.
Then she got to thinking about how this little spider looked a lot like the stamen of the Foxglove flower she was sitting in, and possibly had adapted to that, to better blend in and camouflage herself from predators.
Thanks for letting me photograph you, Charlotte!
