Hide and go seek

I spotted him on the wall first. Then on a dresser. Then on my desk. Then on a different wall, in another room. Searching, searching.

Running crab spider, Philodromus dispar, male, and ready to mate.

He's looking for his girlfriend. He knows she's here somewhere, sitting quietly, waiting. But where?

Waving his "boxing glove" pedipalps.

I saw the female yesterday; she's small and pale, and rather shy. But he'll find her, I think. He was at least on the right wall the last time I saw him.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
