Crab Spiders

Along with Jumping Spiders, I think Crab Spiders are a favorite arachnid of mine.  These are hunting spiders that don’t build webs but stalk their prey and are always on the prowl.  This one is showing it’s typical form, standing in a flower, fronts legs up and ready to grab whatever goes by.
