Bicolor Purseweb
I was looking on line and saw the bicolor purseweb spider. I photographed one of these on my balcony in the Nashville, TN area last year and attached is the photograph. I was surprised that it was extremely aggressive and rared up and struck out when I tried to move it off the balcony because my inquisitive dog was on his way outside at the time. Less than a week later, another was spotted less than a mile from my home in the parking lot at work. Attached is the photo. Enjoy!

Hi Evan,
Thank you for sending us your photo of a Red Legged Purseweb Spider. We are in awe of this species. You must have encountered them during mating season when the males wander in search of the females.
