The best known crab spiders wait in flowers, and catch the insects that come for nectar or pollen. This one waits on tree leaves, typically Oak. Like some other crab spiders, she can make some changes to her colour. It takes a few days. But this mixture of green, yellow and brown should work well in autumn.
