Day 152 Crab Spider (Thomisidae)

Via Flickr:
I was planning on just photographing the little, knobby apples on the apple tree today. I was thrilled to come across this pretty, almost transparent spider. As always, I’m not 100% certain on the ID; but given the side-stepping nature it exhibited, my best guess is that it is one of the 130 species of crab spiders from the Thomisidae family in our region.
