Congratulations Bill, poor unsuspecting bees, wasps and flies. They don't have a chance against Crab Spider camouflage.

Thanks dotun55! They do have amazing camo. What is really fascinating about these is the variant colors that they achieve to match their surroundings.

Congrats beaker98 on this SOTD!
