Crab spider

Female Misumena vatia spider eating an unidentified hoverfly in a Pembroke Dock garden. This crab spider is able to slowly change its colour to some extent to match the flower it is on so that it can lie in wait for its unsuspecting meal. They are usually white, yellow or greenish. Clearly this is as far as it can go to appear lavender!
