crab spider and prey

Just a quick post to document these two lovely bright crab spiders I saw yesterday. I think they are female Misumena vatia and had previously been hanging out in the buttercups before they came over to the clover for a snack.

The pictures would have been better but for a big fat black cat that saw me at a disadvantage crouched down to get the shot and decided that was the moment to leap onto my shoulder for a cuddle.
