[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi friends in TN,

This is the crab spider that was hiding at home from my previous post Spider at home. She descended to the ground and I managed a few shots before she disappeared under the grass. I like the color on her back, looking like it was being sprayed in black and white. I hope I am right that this is a crab spider and please correct me if I am wrong.

Have a nice weekend ahead.

Hi Jusni,
Excellent view of this spider, what a colorful one too. Good nature image with its habitat perfectly captured. tfs.

Hi Jusni,
A pretty impressive and colorful spider!
You did it great with the macro lens to get close enough to have this shot done before the spider disappeared.
Very good also with the fill flash.
Amazing colours and patterns rendered with plenty of sharp details.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hi Jusni, A very strange crab spider which i have not seen before. The colours and pattern is very beautiful. You captured it with perfectly my friend. Nice dorsal POV and details.
TFS. Have a nice weekend my dear friend!

Helo Jusni !
Wow, what an amazing spider you have found ! I love its greenish color and the markings on his abdomen, it's really beautiful. Excellent sharpness and details, and it's nice also to see the ground covered with forest things (wood and dead leaves)- always niceto see the animals in their natural environment. Very well done !

Hello Jusni,
A fine macro of this spider taken from a dorsal POV with excellent sharpness and colours. Nice composition on the ground too.
I don't think this is a crab spider: it has the wrong shape but I can't give you the right ID.
TFS this beauty,

Wow, Jusni, I've never seen such a colourful crabspider. I also posted one some days ago - but her body is only white.
This here is crossbred of crabspider and waspspider with the yellow parts.
Realy interesting and wonderful, thanks and greetings
