Thanks for both lists Tim. (Remember I'm a list freak too!)
Just in case you run into one of those days where there doesn't seem to be any lists anywhere, there are some nice ones in this thread:

We wouldn't want to see you suffer from any type of list deficiency syndrome. LOL

While taking pictures of the two monarch caterpillars utilizing my butterfly weed, I spotted quite a bit of diversity right around the bush--aside from several pollinators I've seen there in the past, that day I spotted three different kinds of spider.

The first I believe to be a young Argiope aurantia...the funny thing is when I went to the other side of the Asclepius to get a different angle, I almost ran into another one. Two of the same species about a foot apart.

The 2nd I was thinking was a yellow crab spider (Misumena vatia), but now I think it is something else. The odd looking one on the end still needs ID...and correct me if I'm wrong on the others. (sorry they are kind of "frass photos")

Thanks. Maybe I can add them to my list---er, I mean start my list with them.

~smile~ Thanks, Sage.

I was thinking of posting them with your spiders, but don't want to detract from your spider saga. ~smile~

Hmmm....just wondering: Are you named after the herb or is it for your wise intellect?
