Yellow spider with red spots

Spokane, WA

Does anyone know what kind of spider this is? I found pictures of yellow spiders but I couldn’t find any with the red marks. I am in eastern Washington. Thank you!

It's a goldenrod crab spider, Misumena vatia. These spiders can change their background color to match the flower(s) where they wait for prey.
