Misumena vatia

Misumena vatia
Palm Beach County, Florida, USA

I'm guessing Misumena vatia, am I close? What about the little bug that it's eating?

Florida crab spider
Definitely not Misumena vatia, which does not occur in Florida. Given the location and overall color, the only possibility that readily comes to mind is Synema viridans. I'm not entirely convinced of this, however, due to the macrosetae on the carapace.

Right family, but
this might be Mecaphesa. Haven't seen one with so much color!
