This guy was fairly small and perched on top of our cactus. Spotted just north of Austin Texas.

Crab Spider (Thomisidae). Not sure which exact one.

My guess would be a female Misumena vatia

It isn’t Misumena vatia. They have pink or red markings and a yellow marking band across the eyes. We don’t get many photos of Crab Spiders on cacti.

Ah yes, you’re right I must’ve overlooked that
