Spider on nettle

Just happened to see this little fellow stretched out along the stem of a nettle plant in Ayres Natural Bridge Park in Wyoming. Unfortunately I couldn't photograph it there because the nettle was in dark shade and the background was bright sun. But a little bit of "herding" got it moved to this more tractable spot.

I have no idea what kind of spider this is, sorry!
