Flower Spider - Diaea evanida (or a closely related species) by 

This female Crab or Flower spider Diaea evanida (or a closely related species) waited all day to get one of those delicious hover flies so tantalisingly close, but alas… … .. Oh well there’s always tomorrow!
Emerald Beach, Coffs Harbour, NSW, Aust

Postscript! The Hover Fliers get reprieve as Miss Flower Spider became prey herself to an Abispa species of Potter Wasp the next morning!!

    Amazing detail & patterns. I think I saw one of these on a bottlebrush a while back but it had too many places to hide from my camera.
