Brian, I've never seen a white, almost translucent spider like this is it albino?

The second is my favorite Brian with the subject moving into the frame and enough environment to make it interesting

Thanks all for the comments- appreciated

Douglas- this is a normal colour I think - they range between white to yellow as the main body colour but can change colour to match the flower better. Species Misumena vatia

Yes, sometimes this species has pink lateral stripes or some yellow on the face. They can coat themselves with yellow pigment but can't change back to white. However, I suspect that they will revert to white after a moult.

Very nice images, Brian.
