Crab Spider (two photos)

Flower crab spider
This tiny crab spider was found at Red Butte Gardens (on my friend's arm).  Luckily
she didn't smash it and instead offered it for a photo. We loaded it on to this
paper for easy photographing but it didn't stay long. Carol Davis, 6-24-05

crab spider waiting for its next victim
This little crab spider was lurking on a tiny flower ready
to snatch its next victim near Ivins Reservoir in Southern Utah.  Notice
how the long front legs are designed to easily grab unsuspecting
pollinators.  Carol Davis, 4-24-06
