Often called a Flower Crab Spider. It belongs to the Crab Spider Family (Thomisidae). These spiders don’t move around a lot. Instead, they find a suitable location and then let their prey come to them. They often sit in the center of an attractive flower, looking upwards, legs raised skyward, waiting for an unwary bee, hover fly, or other victim to come looking for pollen or nectar.
