Artist's Description

Sony Cyber Shot 100V
June 2014
Pennsylvania
I had noticed all these Hover Flies on these yarrow plants the other day and upon further investigation, I noticed they had all become dinner to these crab spiders. Since none of my pictures turned out very well, I returned the next day to re do them only to find they were all gone except this one that had another prey.
Misumenoides formosipes
(Whitebanded Crab Spider)
Summary
This spider waits in ambush on flowers for visiting insects to come within range, seizing a victim in the embrace of its first two pairs of legs. Adult females can change from white to yellow and vice versa, though the change takes some time. Males are very small and strikingly different than females.
