Taken sometime during the summer of 2007, this is a crab spider (Misumena vatia) waiting for an unsuspecting bee or hoverfly to be tempted by the pollen fest that awaits inside this Ferdinand Pichard rose. Like Alium Rising this is a photo that I like very much.
Taken with a Nikon D200, Sigma 105mm macro lens, Sigma ring flash. 1/60 sec, f22 or higher
