What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Micrathena?
Greetings, Whats That Bug?!,
This curious-looking spider has taken up residence on our front porch. It is only about 1 cm long, and violently shakes its web when disturbed. After looking at Bugguide, I believe it is a Spined Micrathena http://bugguide.net/node/view/1996 . Nonetheless, I thought the close-ups might be good enough to help some WTB? viewers to ID this neat little critter. Regards,
Emily

Hi Emily,
Thank you so much for sending us your great images of a Spined Micrathena, Micrathena gracilis.
