Runcinia grammica (C. L. Koch, 1837)
Araneae: Thomicidae

Runcinia grammica is a species of spider of the family Thomisidae. Males are usually 2.5–3.5 mm in length, females 4-6 mm. Opisthosoma female: red-brown with white pattern consisting of 3 divergent, irregular longitudinal stripes. Male: grey-brown. This is a female.

It is not a spider spinning its web, but lives lurking among flowers, plants and walls. Like all crab spiders, it can walk forward, backward and sideways.

Hi Nikos,excellent macro of this small spider inside a cicoria flower,very good capture from above with natural colors too,i like it! Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hello Nikos,
Nothing to say about colour, exposure. Well WB too. But spider is too small in the frame, in my test again. Too much BLANK SPACE, mainly back portion. A bit extra sharpness could have been more attractive. Yes, in my test.
Thanks for showing,
Best regards,

Ciao Nikos, great macro of lovely spider, splendid light, good details, excellent sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Nikos,
An attractive shot of this crab spider. Focus may not be tac sharp, but still quite good. Colors appear natural and the exposure looks great. The flower looks very similar to the chicory we have here in Ohio.
