Art in Nature

I had planned to post 'Stamps of the Week' today but couldn't resist posting these pictures that I took yesterday. Often nature creates the best art.

While out counting wildflowers in the sub-alpine yesterday I encountered this very yellow spider sitting atop this cluster of Pseudocymopteris montanus. I almost mistook him for being the center of a flower because he was so perfectly centered in the cluster and is the exact same color as these flowers. His body was perfectly shaped like a gourd. I love that his arms are also yellow and you can see all of his joints.

I'm not normally a big fan of spiders but the lines and color of this one were beautiful.
