A crab spider and her ingenious hide.

Unfortunately I didn’t get to see her build it, but she had one on several blossoms in her little territory.  Clever girl.  She was able to take down many an unwary bee with this set up.  Handheld at 1/250 f4 with the OM 90mm macro.  She was very hard to sneak up on and when she sensed my looming presence she’d dart under the flower and escape.
