To the bug expert, my friend took a pic of this spider sitting next to her on some rocks. It took her a while to notice that it was quietly sitting next to her. Was she in serious danger???

Fishing Spider

Hi Joseph,
Your friend encountered a Fishing Spider in the genus
Dolomedes, and we believe it might be Dolomedes scriptus based on this photo posted to BugGuide.  Were the rocks near water?

Yes actually. Near a lake she tells me.
