Misumena vatia
Misumena vatia, the flower spider, is a species of crab spider found in North America and Europe. Females choose to settle on a flower where they remain stationary, while the much smaller males roam around looking for mates. This female spider was photographed having caught a silver-spotted skipper on a Centaurea jacea flower in Bükk National Park, Hungary.Photograph credit: Charles J. Sharp
