Hi, this looks like a crab spider in family Thomisidae. I can’t tell which one. They’re aren’t spiders that stay in a web. They position themselves in places where insects are likely to go, like flowers. There they camouflage themselves and lunge in a surprise attack against insects that are often larger than themselves.
