Different strategies

As a result of spending most of a lifetime in the outdoors, I have an understanding of how at least a part of nature works. But I still have a big list of question marks.

For example, I just noticed two photos that sit side by side in one of my files (which are getting completely out of hand, by the way), having been taken on adjacent days. The first one is of a Cottontail who is taking full advantage of his natural camouflage, and that certainly makes a lot of sense. He is easy to overlook, even to a trained eye.

But what in the world is the strategy of this little crab spider? (I do have to admire his attitude though!)
