Crab Spider on Purple Horsemint

I was in my photography studio taking pictures of a Purple Horsemint for my Texas Wildflower collection when I spotted this tiny crab spider. He would not sit still long enough for me to take his picture. He kept going to the back side of the flower so I would turn it around and then he would go right back. I guess I wore him out because he then became still long enough for me to take this image.
