Thanks Oneng!
Sorry Atul but I'm unable to capture the top view. I have uploaded another image... unfortunately, the back is blurred due to DOF. I think the back pattern is similar to this spider. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/768... . Please check out the video at around 0:10. Thanks!

A top view with the back pattern would be still more helpful!

Very beautiful. I think this is a common housefly catcher (Plexippus petersi) based on the markings on the front leg
