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.

What a fantastic macro!

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.
