australian crab spider thomisus spectabilis on red flower

White flower spider Thomisus spectabilis IMG 5084 - This female spider is usually well camouflaged on the petals of white or yellow flowers as she waits for her prey, which might be a bee or other insect that arrives to pollinate the flower. She was photographed as she moved from one white flower to another, and would have been easy prey for another predator if she had remained on these red petals for too long.
