Hello, all. This spider was sitting on the flower all day today. I believe I have a Pisaurina of some kind, but I would like to confirm that with someone more knowledgeable than me. Do these spiders sit on flowers waiting for a pollinator to grab and eat?

It is indeed a Pisaurina, perhaps Pisaurina mira, which appears to be more of a 'sit and wait' predator...
