Crab Spider "Thomisus onustus" I found this kind of spider recently inside some white flowers. It&#039;s incredible how they hide inside the flower waiting for insects to come for the p&oacute;len and then make their hunting move! <br />
This one is a female, females can change between 3 colours to camouflage in the flowers :-D European,Geotagged,Portugal,Summer,Thomisus onustus,fly,spider Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
