Spider and I



The spider is Misumena Vatia, family Thomisidae. In English, she's a crab spider, specifically a flower spider or a goldenrod spider. They don't spin webs. They just hang out on flowers and wait for bugs to drop by. And, get this, they change color to camoflage themselves! Only from white to yellow apparently, and it takes a few days, but that explains why she looks so nice on the marigolds!
