Green Crab Spider (Synema Sp) Thomisidae

I found this tiny little hunting spider on a rose. He is hardly bigger than two match-heads together.
He was busy spining a web for himself amongst the petals.....
and as I got near, he sent some onto the branch next to me. This is an awful photograph but if you enlarge it, you can see the silk coming out on the right.
