Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I believe this spider to be Misemena Vatia (Goldenrod Crab Spider). The female was atop a lone Carduus Nutans (Musk Thistle) patiently awaiting a pollinator for dinner. Photo was taken at 5:54pm MST.

LOL, I only use Android for spider pics, they’re inexpensive enough to drop and drown repeatedly while spider hunting.:)
