Crab Spider with Prey 3

By franfoto
This is the third image in this series of four.

Since I've been uploading these, I have been given some more information regarding this species, it's a 'misumenta vatia', also known as 'white death' and you can see why!

My thanks for all the interest in the first two, some great comments and I really appreciate your time and support.

Just in case you missed the first one and the narrative on this it is again:- [link=/user/franfoto-68579/gallery/photo/crab-spider-with-prey-1-16581171]White Crab Spider[/link]

Thanks for looking

Fran x
