Nursery web spider?

This looks quite like the nursery web spider Pisaura mirabilis - but I'm not very certain of this!

pisaura

Yes, I reckon it's this species - one of the few spiders that habitually basks on leaves in full sun. No other species that I know of have the thick, velvety legs. Superb photo!
