Crab Spider

  1. Great images, Jude! It is the Goldenrod Crab Spider (Misumena vatia), a female, same species as in my images, but with the stripes! These stripes can also vary in colour, depending on what flowers they want to blend into.

    1. Thanks Pete, I had no doubt that you’d know it. I didn’t know it was a female either. I found the way she held her two front legs (in the first two pics) quite fascinating – reminded me of a ballet dancer!

    1. Also it just occurred to me that as well as crab spiders there are spider crabs! I remember them from many years scuba diving! Huge bid spindly things! 🦀🦀
