Synaema globosum 01
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This crab spider was found sitting on an 'umbrella' of Artedia squamata (Apiaceae, carrot family). Perhaps this spider belong to a species of Synaema globosum (Fabricius, 1775). In some books a generic name can be spelled as Synema.|
S. globosum is mainly found in the Mediterranean area (e.g., this specimen has been shooted near Ariel, Samaria). The background color in this species can be quite variable, from off-white to dark orange.

According to the picture I have to say that I never seen such spider species, especially crab sprider. Its combination of red-black colours are really interesting. Good DOF, POV and composition.
Have a nice day and best greetings from Poland,
Excellent macro, nice composition and colors.
Very good details.
