Crab spider with nest 3 - Misumena vatia

Crab spider with nest 3 - Misumena vatia
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
June 29, 2007
This leaf she has spun her web around folding it up, this would be the place where she'd lay her eggs right?

Misumena Vatia
I think this is Misumena vatia again.

 
thanks
interesting spiders :)

 
The spider is very common,
but I don't remember seeing an egg sac like that before, so that's interesting.
