Lime-green ‘V’ spider…

At the end of a camping trip in Rock Island, TN, we were taking down our tents when I found this little critter. Originally, he was on the tent, but I moved him onto a nearby tree with a leaf so he wouldn’t get squished amongst our packing. I’ve never seen this species before and I was just curious as to what type of spider he/she is.
I also wanted to mention I love your site. Through it, I’ve figured out what baby wheel bugs, house centipedes, and female dobsonflies are!

This little beauty is a female Arrowshaped Micrathena, Micrathena sagittata. It is a harmless orbweaver that is found in wooded areas.
