Golden Rod Crab Spider
First time I’ve ever seen one. Complete accident that I saw it when I was photographing the daisies!

Beautiful! Yes, this is Misumena vatia, a Goldenrod Crab Spider. I don’t have a photo of one yet in my spider or flower photos. I know I’ll find one eventually. I try to photograph a new species each day for my biology photo collection. Today I got a white earwig that just molted. Better than nothing. 🙂
