Found this little guy while walking around in my backyard yesterday. Anyone got any ideas as to what it is? Thanks in advance. :)

Thanks everyone for the I.D. I don't really need it identified down to a sp. level, I was just curious as to what kind it was. I think I'm going to go out tomorrow and see what else I can find. Watching that little one was far too entertaining to not to go out and see what else I can find. :)

That looks like a Philodromidae (Running Crab Spiders) to me.
