Oh Shit!

I had planned to capture the moments of a butterfly metamorphosis in the early morning, but couldn't find any "ripe" chrysalis. Ended up spotting a piece of shit (pardon the language) on a leaf before I left the spot.

The Bird-Dropping Spider (Phrynarachne rugosa) sports a black and white glazed blobby surface to give it an authentic wet shitty look. It even emits smells to lure flies right to it's grasping legs!

#1 View from behind. At first, I thought this was the front, but couldn't find any eyes nor positioned legs!

#2 Found the eyes! Wet doe-eyed look, pretending to be innocent, but is actually a cunning predator!
