Lovely spider!

A friend  sent me this photo a little while ago and I think it would look good on the Wildlife section of our community website. So I've sent it for publication.  Fantastic I would say!  A common spider,  found in her garden. It changes its colour (slowly)  to suit its background but it hasn't got it right yet this time! There should be one in your garden  right now! I believe it to be a female Crab Spider, Misumena vatia.

 The male is smaller and brown! Typical.
