Pradeep, Ashutosh, Christiane, Atul, thank you. Lauren, I never found this species on flowers, but only on (or, most often under) leaves. However, sometimes it stays on a stem, pretending to be a bud:

Thank you all for the nice comments. Cindy, I often find these spiders in some medium size bushes, beside a trail in the woods. I don't remember the name of that plant now, but I'll ask someone who knows it. They are quite common around here, but hard to find, because they are very shy.

Awesome, Sergio! What was the habitat for this beauty?
