Nature's Colors

Nature has a way of protecting its own, something can be right in front of you and you don’t see it. Like the walking stick (praying mantis) looks like a piece of wood. While I was taking pictures of scenery I happen across a creature that I have seen before, but I almost didn’t see it here.

Can you see it look closely…

Yes it is a spider, I have seen this type of spider in several different places, but here I almost didn’t see him in such a natural surrounding for this colorful creature. Oh, did I mention I am petrified of spiders.

"It is hardest for us to see what lies right in front of us. Our minds focus, instead of our eyes and we let some of the most beautiful sights escape us."
