A yellow, green cucumber green spider.

This photograph was taken by Erland Lewin on Jul 11, 2006 14:56.

I think this spider is a cucumber green spider (Araniella cucurbitina), but it is also similar to Misumena vatia (because of the yellow color). Apparently A. Cucurbitina and A. opisthographa are also very difficult to tell apart. Thanks to Lelle at http://www.minaxforum.net for help with identification. It was about 1 cm long. The photo was taken with macro-rings, manual exposure and focus.
