A Fancy Crab Spider

A crab spider’s small size makes them easy to overlook,

especially with their ability to change color to match the flowers they’re on.

This one seems to have a creative streak, when it comes to designing its attire.

They are called crab spiders because of their legs being similar to those of crabs. The male is smaller than the female.
