Help ID Florida Spider Please

New Smyrna Beach, FL

Attached is a great zoomed in image of a brown spider on my pineapple plant. Sometimes, he likes to hide down in the middle. I'm not a spiderologist, so any help is much appreciated. I'm guessing it's either a Huntsman, Tarantula, or Brown Recluse.

This appears to be a running crab spider (family Philodromidae). Having the second pair of legs longer than any of the others is characteristic of this family. They are harmless to humans.
