An interesting little spider!

About 1.5cm long, legs included.

Metellina (sp)
                                          One of the Long-jawed Orb Weavers (Tetragnathidae) 
Possibly species:  curtisi

I found it outside stretched out on my screen door this morning where it stayed for this photo..

The two pedipalps indicate it's sex

    1. I'll let it live. I'd rather not have to slap the mosquitoes it will kill.
