Some orchid species like the burnt and lady orchids occur mainly in southern Europe. They betray their southern origin with their annual rhythm which is adapted to the climate there. They produce leaves in winter, flower in the spring and then become dormant. The orchids survive dry summer months by storing moisture and nutrients in tubers. The name "orchid" comes from the Greek "orchis" which means "testicle" and refers to the shape of the root.
Not all spiders build webs to trap their prey. The crab spider lies in wait on flowers or plants, seizes small insects with its forelegs and injects venom which paralyzes its prey.
