Orange spider that blends in very well with its surroundings. The most common color for this spider is green but the females can change colors over several days to blend in. This is a female and she's protecting her egg sac. To see the green and red coloring on this species as well as a better photo of the egg sac, see my other spotting: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/750...
