Running Crab Spider  - (two photos)
genus Philodromus

thanatus running crab spider
This spider doesn't have quite the same markings as Philodromus histrio so I'm just leaving it at genus level.

This spider is absolutely gorgeous.  It looks big and scary but it is just a small spider.  It stayed on this group of tiny budding
 flowers the entire time I was at Red Butte Garden in Salt Lake City (about 4 hours).  © Carol Davis, 5-28-2009
