Crab spider ??
Found this guy inside my house . Couldn’t get a great picture as he was along a ledge. My thought is some type of ‘CRAB’. Am I correct?

Hi David,
You are absolutely correct. Your Crab Spider, Misumena vatia, is also known as a Flower Spider or Goldenrod Spider. It is able to change color to match the flower it is sitting upon while waiting to pounce upon pollinating insects like bees.
