Male Sheetweaver Spider
Hi Jo! This is definitely a male spider, and given the shape of the head and abdomen and the length of the legs, I would suggest that it is a sheetweaver spider.

Thanks ^_^ I've think see
Thanks ^_^

I've think seen Sheetweaver spiders here. I have to go looking for webs ^_^

The best place to look...
From my experience, I have found the best places to look for sheetweaver webs are in evergreen-style shrubs (e.g. - holly bushes, etc.). The leaves/fronds are close together, leaves/needles are small and unaffected by mild breezes, and have lots of little insects buzzing around them. :)

Happy hunting.
