Observation - crabspider. Description: I think this is some type of crab spider - I was taking photos of bees and most were flying. This bee was stationary and it wasn't until I moved close to take a macro photo did I see the spider. Also does anyone know how the spider picks up the colour

I think this is some type of crab spider - I was taking photos of bees and most were flying. This bee was stationary and it wasn't until I moved close to take a macro photo did I see the spider.

Also does anyone know how the spider picks up the colour from the flower ?
