A most peculiar-looking spider, even for its kind, flat like a stingray and as translucent as a jellyfish. So blending with the background one might be inclined to think it was one of those camouflaging able spiders, elusive and therefore dangerous to its prey. Presently perched on a column with purpose, ready to strike fast, but embodying the calmness of a lagoon, it lies in wait for a juicy something to pass by its circle of assault. All that being said, it is a beautiful spider, yes?
