found this bug on the outside of our door on 9/24/11. Temp was around 77 and sunny. the yellow body was about 1/2” overall.
This pretty little spider is a harmless Arrowshaped Micrathena, Micrathena sagittata. According to BugGuide, it spins its small webs in open woods.
thank you ever so much for identifying this spider, it really is very pretty.
