Photo of the Day

This is my basil spider. He (or she) has protected my basil plant from being eaten by other bugs. The tomatoes, green beans and arugula all have bites taken out of them, but the basil is untouched. If I get too close to him he raises his front four legs like he is going to start doing martial arts. I got him to pose for the camera. (Note: he is really small and it is hard to get a great shot of him without a macro lens, but this one isn't that bad)
