Misumenoides formosipes / Xylocopa sp
This small crab spider was waiting on a beebalm flower ready to ambush any unsuspecting insect that landed there. Unfortunately for her, this bee was rather more than she bargained for & after a quick approach she made an even quicker retreat!
Semi rural wildlife habitat.
