Crab Spiders

Crab spiders come in a variety of colors; some are said to be able to change colors to match the flower where they sit and wait with “open arms” to catch pollinators visiting these flowers. The arrangement of their small eyes determines their genus and species. Usually only the larger females are seen; the males are much smaller.
