It was a day of finding odd things

The morning started off by me finding two small spiders in my kitchen. Both are the same species, but the odd thing was that both of them had missing limbs. This one had 5 1/2 legs....
...and this one had 6. Do you know that if they loose a limb, a new one grows out again?
There was one thing "normal" though, this bee searching for nectar.
This flower grew on a hedge but it had wo different types of flowers on it in two different colors.
This one too on a different shrub.
This is the flower of a small shrub and was quite unusual too.
Then I saw this robber fly flying around with what looked like the skin of something. I wonder what it was and what he was going to do with it?
