Male crab spider, Misumena vatia on Anthriscus sylvestris-flower
Body length: 4-5 mm

Had I been born a crab spider I would seriously consider celibacy (I suppose that could be said many spiders). These skinny guys don't seem to stand much of a chance against their robust and gluttonuous females. I suppose there is a simple explanation as to why the grown females seem to heavily outnumber the males.

Stacked from 60 natural light exposures in Zerene stacker.
