Spider captures butterfly on wildflower.

I was photographing butterflies in the side yard of my cabin when I noticed a Pearl Crescent butterfly and began taking photographs. I followed the butterfly to a yellow wildflower and it appeared to hang motionless below the flower. As I got closer I saw that a small Crab spider had captured the butterfly.
