Life in an Orchid

When we found the Acrolophia lamellata yesterday, I was wondering why some of the flowers were seemingly knotted.  Closer inspection of the flowers in question shows a Crab Spider has made a nest there and if one looks closely at the top flower, one can see a tiny spider, presumably its offspring, at the entrance to  the nest.
