I am trying to be invisible

I can safely say I am getting the hang of my new camera. Every day presents a photo opportunity, and most times my camera is nearby to take advantage of these times.
There is still much to learn about all the features available on my Kodak Z650 and I am am having a lot of fun exploring them.
What do you think of this photo, not bad Eh?

Does anyone know what kind of spider this is?

I did my homework and have the answer.

Crab Spiders (Family Thomisidae).
There colorful spiders, have a crablike appearance. They generally appear on blossoms, where they blend with their background and pounce on prey that visits flowers.

I think your pictures are beautiful Keewee. I knew you had an "eye" for some fantastic photos. Keep us the great work!

Wonderful photo!! I have never ever seen a spider quite like that. Nature is amazing in her diversity.

I love that mauve coloured flower, but that white spider reminds me of the day I wanted to pick a few Daisies out in the garden, as I reached out to cut the next one, there was Mr. great white sitting on the flower, I got such a fright, I lost all interest in cutting any more Daisies - a nice looker, but I'd rather not mess with him! :-)

Your right Keewee, neat photo. I'm glad you pointed it out to me as I had missed it. Mr Purrsey would have loved to play with that spider.
