I was chatting with a friend, deadheading waning autumn flowers. My eye caught something bright atop one of the dead blooms, a fallen curled up petal? No - this amazing creature. Not your typical brown/black spider but BRIGHT canary yellow, not quite 2 cm across. Has anyone else seen one in their garden?

Thanks 420722. I found it on this website. And it even shows it on the same flower I saw it on. http://www.spiders.us/species/misumenoides-formosipes/ Cool!!

Is the spider on the photo of the yellow daisy? I sure can't see it! (Great camouflage?)

My guess is a white banded crab spider and I've never seen one in person! What a beautiful creature.
