Double Deception: Dragon's Mouth Orchid and Flower Crab Spider

A tiny, northern bog orchid, the Dragon's Mouth lures bees with its spotted, spiky tongue. The Crab Spider, capable of changing color (yellow or white), spins no web but rather lurks in flowers, preying on curious insects, like this hapless fly.
