What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

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,

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