This yellow flower crab spider was pretty easy to spot on the bluebell.. It was windy today so I held the stem of the bluebell for these one handed macro shots..
Thanks for all the wonderful comments and clicks on my bug taking off shot.. and thank you Karen for the correct ID which is "Rhopalus subrufus" not a capsid... xxxxxx

Fantastic shot!
The yellow spider against the blue of the flower works well.
Never seen one of these spiders before.
