[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Polish]
Misumena vatia is a species of crab spider with holarctic distribution. In North America, where it is the largest and most well-known flower spider, it is called the Goldenrod crab spider, because it is commonly found hunting in Goldenrod sprays in the autumn.
