Green Lynx in repose

The Dombeya plant is in full bloom. The pink flowers attract lots of bees, and sometimes I will find spiders taking advantage of the ample food supply (the bees, that is.)

This was a rather skinny looking female. Ordinarily, at this time of year I would expect to see her guarding an egg sac, or perhaps a recently hatched brood of spiderlings. But it was just her by herself, and I liked the say she had her legs draped over the flower in a most casual way.
