December 5, 2010: Friendly Telemonia dimidiata butterflies and a surprise crab spider

This is from Saturday, Dec 4, 2010. The beginning of a big big rain storm. So had to make a few photos - as the water was interesting. This is sort of the evolution of a flower

And a big surprise. I was chasing this butterfly around - here and there. She alighted on this yellow flower and I managed to get a couple of photos - one with ok focus. When I got home, I realized that there was a crab spider poised to capture the butterfly. Look in the lower right of the flower and you'll see the crab spider eyes and front legs
