Look, mom! No thorns!
Green Lynx Spider, guarding her egg sac. Let's make a note to look for her whenever we're out there. Young could emerge any day. She's in a White Ball Acacia (Acacia angustissima), one of three acacia species in Sabino Canyon, and the only one without thorns. This White Ball Acacia is on the west side of the creek by the dam. How about a quiz, then, too? What are the other two acacias?
From yesterday: 1) Phainopepla, 2) Male, and 3) Desert Mistletoe seeds.
