Crab Spider (Thomisidae family)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Crab Spider (Thomisidae family)

I initially thought this was a Goldenrod Crab Spider (Misumena vatia) one of the Flower Crab spiders, but now I am leaning toward one of the Mecaphesa spp.

At any rate, these spiders always make me think they are doing aerobics. Shown on Bahia Grass seedhead
