White Spider On Tennessee Coneflower
© 2009 Daniel W. Reed
The flower that this spider seems to be guarding was considered extinct in the 1960s. It has been rediscovered and re- planted in many areas. It is found only in the cedar glades of the central basin of Tennessee. This photo was taken in the largest know natural population of the species at Tennessee's Couchville Cedar Glade State Natural Area.
