ChunXingWong it seems that you have identified two of my spiders - this is another color form. You get the medal for IDing again.

There's an incredible number of these types around here at the moment. Something to do with good rains over the past year ?.

This spider hides in the silk structure and had no orb web. It looks like a hunting spider like the lynx or jumping spiders.
