    Hi Tobias,

    The spider's camouflage has worked very well - in fact too well, as it is hard to see him against the yellow petals in the background. Maybe if you could have set the spider off against the black background it might have had more effect.

    Many crab spiders can, to some extent, change colour to match their surrounds. So when you find it on a white flower it will probably also be white.
