Itsy Bitsy Spider

...napping on a Jerusalem Artichoke leaf.

Actually, it's not that itsy bitsy. It looks like something from outer space.

I didn't mind it while it was meditating.
But suddenly it started to move while I was very, very close up to take pictures. It seemed to flex its muscles while looking straight at me. Creepy. I left while I could.

Edit: I would be interested to learn what kind of spider this is. If anybody knows, please drop me a line in the comment section.

2nd edit: It's a Bird-dropping Spider. Thanks to Scarecrow who identified it for me. The fact sheet can be found here.
