You may have done a double take on this photo. That is not a ladybug.
That is a Ladybug Mimic Spider that uses this clever camouflage to warn
off potential predators.
This gentle non-venomous little spider uses the red and black colors to make other creatures think that it would taste as bad as a ladybug. This spider lives in central and southern Europe.
Happy National Save a Spider Day!
