Another gal that caught my glowing eyes. Female Crab spider.
There are at least 3 different species in my bog garden, but they are a tad tricky as they like to move a little (or a lot) when hit with either visible or UV. You would think if an insect could see/detect that glowing blue goo in the pitcher plant, it sure would detect/see this too!
