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.

Slivilivlinski

My guess would be a female Misumena vatia

TangledWeb

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
