Found this little guy in amongst the spuds today. Never saw a white spider before. This is a crab spider, doesn't spin webs, lies in wait for prey to come to it. Front four legs are bigger than the back four for catching prey. Can be white, yellow or green in colour and will change to suit its environment.

I checked that out, I don't have a twitter account and no intention of joining either. Feel free to copy and paste it yourself. You can keep the royalties too!
