Thank you Augustin! This was quite a large crab spider but I did have my trusty macro converter!

I've seen this in my yard before. Very nice.

Of course it had to be a picture of KarenL!
Fantastic spotting Karen, seen a lot of these lately, too bad my macro can't cope.
The eyes of the spiders just fascinate me, and these are very cool.

I've added a couple more photos of this spider taken this morning. It's overcast today so you can see more detail on the photos.

Thanks Sumukha! She is still there so I've taken a few more pics in less intense light. I'll add them shortly.
