Fun Friday: “Squid” Spider

Caution, Acracnoids … Spider Ahead!!!

Today’s blog post features an unidentified species of spider I found on a Tropical Milkweed leaf, while photographing butterflies at the new butterfly garden at the Lake of the Ozarks (MO).  My first reaction was it looked like a very small, land-based squid!
