Creeping beauty

A predatory spider waits to ambush an unsuspecting insect on a Queen Anne's lace flower growing in a field near Roseburg, Ore., on Sunday, July 29, 201. The seeds of the plant,  also known as wild carrot, were once thought to be a form of birth control. The U.S. Department of Agriculture lists Queen Anne's lace as a noxious weed.

NBCNEWS.COM picked up the photo in their photo blog web gallery yesterday.
I know I've been shooting lots of spiders recently.  I don't think I'll find any better photos than this one and the jumping spider from last week.  Maybe I'll move onto another subject.
