Funky green spider!

Hi all,

new to the forum so please excuse my ignorance....

Having been a wildlife photographer for many years, I have very recently decided to try a bit of macro work so, today, I went out with a basic set-up and came across this fabulous looking arachnid in a pine tree on the Isle of Man.
The habitat is a low-lying, coastal lychen heath interspersed with bracken, gorse and heather. There are two v. small pine plantations and it was on the southern edge of one of these I found the spider. It was appx. 15mm (at the most) in size and would have easily fit on my little finger nail.

I hope there is enough information to help with the ID.

 

Thanks for any help,

Chris
