Spider on Green Bush Sunflower Head 2516

Do you remember the bush sunflower, Simsia calva, that you saw from June 13th along Great Northern Blvd.? During that session, while photographing a still-green bush sunflower head in front of a fully open one, I noticed that the one in the foreground was serving as home to a small spider. (Did you know that spider means essentially ‘spinner’?)
