Looks like a pilates spiderGrin!
A great find, Brian, and beautifully captured on its way out of the bin, it probably didn't feel safe inside there.

Excellent macro Brian of this fascinating little female Crab Spider (Misumena vatia). The females are excellent parents and are very protective of their offspring. Well captured.
