INaturalist doesn't want to accept this as an observation for the Acton Nature Center even though it was photographed in the Butterfly Garden there. Mystifying. But I did find I could manually edit the location so all is well.

Description from Wikipedia

Lynx spider is the common name for any member of the family Oxyopidae. Most species make little use of webs, instead spending their lives as hunting spiders on plants. Many species frequent flowers in particular, ambushing pollinators, much as crab spiders do. They tend to tolerate members of their own species more than most spiders do, and at least one species has been identified as exhibiting social behaviour.
