Flower spider pastel paradise I came across an oh so tiny male flower/crab spider, king of his castle. I watched him hunting, perhaps looking for the ladies. <br />
<br />
In the time I spent watching him, he didn&#039;t stray from this one small area, as if he&#039;d made it very much his own little pastel paradise. <br />
<br />
I chose to present him here as only a small subject, surrounded by his marshmallow kingdom - to emphasise his tiny size. <br />

Seen on native Eremophila nivea. <br />
