i also saw this tiny, crab-like spider on the leaf of my angel wing begonia. it's white body really stood out against the darker green of the leaf.

there is a big picture window off our great room that i call my bird-watching window. i keep my louisiana bird book there, a couple other field guides and my binoculars. in summer the regulars are cardinals, tufted titmice, carolina chickadees, carolina wrens, eastern bluebirds, red-breasted woodpeckers and the beautiful blue jays. they get a bad rap but ours are pretty well behaved but will be sent packing by the woodpeckers. here they are enjoying a drink out of the bird bath. a platform feeder(an old stump) serves the larger birds and a hanging feeder attracts the smaller species. i can't wait for fall and winter when all kinds of birds migrate through.
