Spider on flower / Edderkopp på blomst

I found this beautiful spider climbing on a flower out in the garden. So I had to run in and get my camera and macro lens. Here are the three best shots. After some searching on the Internet this spider appears to be a Misumena vatia commonly known as the "flower (crab) spider" or "kameleon edderkopp" (in Norwegian)
