Tuesday Photo Showcase #24

Up to 10mm long, the Crab Spider lurks in brightly coloured flowers waiting for its prey. It pounces when they land close by, and traps them between crab-like front legs, the venomous bite quickly paralyses most large insects. On top of this, it possesses chameleon-like abilities and can change colour, though the process takes a few days.
