Crab on a stick - Thanatus - male

Crab on a stick - Thanatus - Male
Antelope Island, Davis County, Utah, USA
October 10, 2010
This little male was waving in the breeze on a small stick about 1 1/2 feet off the ground. It was alive and it did move about 90 degrees at one point around the stick. Very strange. Looks like Thanatus formicinus. I took two photos - one with and one without the flash. I think it must have velcro on its stomach.
