Misumenoides formosipes

What a pretty crab spider I found in the garden at my parents’ house in Chesapeake, Va. She was very shy, and kept moving away from me when I approached. She was quite small, body length of around 6mm. The kind folks over at bugguide.net identified her; I initially thought she was a Goldenrod Spider, but the inverted ‘V’ on her back gives her away.
