Spotted in Prairie Village: Bright green Crab Spider

The ol’ shawneemissionpost.com camera is in the shop this week, which has prevented us from capturing some pretty cool bird sightings, I’m afraid.

But the wonders of camera phone technology allowed us to capture a shot of an odd (to us at least) li’l fella clinging to our car door the other day. Maybe you see neon green spiders crawling around all the time — but it was a first for me:

Through the additional wonder that is the Internet, I was able to do a bit of research suggesting this is a Crab Spider.

(By the by, if and when you spot any of nature’s little wonders out and about in northeast Johnson County, we’d love to see the pics and share them with our readers – hit us up at stories@shawneemissionpost.com)
