Crab Spider - Misumena vatia

By Mendipman  
For me it has now become an annual ritual to photograph the crab spiders in the garden and usually the first ones I find are often dressed in white, however this year all the spiders I have seen have chosen the yellow dress, just as well if you going to park yourself on a dandelion!

Best viewed large.

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous upload of the Brimstone butterfly and especially to Paul (livinglevels) and Karen (KarenFB) for their User Awards, all so very much appreciated. GrinGrinGrinGrin
