This little guy was doing laps around my outdoor coffee table. No idea what he is - very leopard looking to me.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a Western Lynx Spider, Oxyopes scalaris.

It very likely does have the leg spines but they just aren’t in focus in the image and are difficult to see with the naked eye. They do leap!
