Do you have a date for this image? I'm frassing some images of this species.. and this could be one without a date. We just have too many images of the more common species.

Edit... I added the date and frassed the other image. Thanks.

Crab spider and honey bee
Very nice image! The spider is the "flower spider," Misumena vatia, and the bee is a worker honey bee, Apis mellifera.

Howdy.... Goldenrod Spider. As for the bee.... I think it's called "The Blue Plate Special". OK, that's a joke.....
