The face on the first spider is downright comical when you look at it up close. It looks buck toothed and cross eyed.

I think the spider looks pretty bad...like she's wearing white shades.

I just love this picture of the spider on the water. Excellent. Not knowledgeable in the world of wild plants. What on earth is the pink on pink. Looks like a crown. beautiful.

I'm pretty sure the orchid you photographed is the Showy Lady Slipper not the Pink Lady Slipper. Cypripedium reginae not C. acaule.

I believe your spider might be Misumena vatia. Wonderful photo. One of the best I have ever seen at WG.

A cool - soothing place to relax in on a warm muggy day.

A little spider skitters along the side of an awaiting pitcher plant.
