Crab Spider eating a Pink Edged Sulpher Butterfly

This spider will sit for up to 2 weeks in the same spot,
wait for it's prey, then grab it with his front legs, paralize it, then suck the juices out of it
They also will turn colors for camoflauge, so may turn white, pink, green, brown depending what it is sitting on.
It said they could live over 100 yrs
Most crab spiders are less than 1 cm (0.4 in),
Worldwide there are about 2000 known species of crab spiders
I was kinda scared, being is I used my 18-55 usm IS with +10 close up macro filter, praying it didnt jump on me
Hope you enjoy!!!
