I saw this guy hanging on the outside of our sliding glass door frame. The douglas fir needle next to him is about one and a quarter inches long.
It looked like he had several strands of silk coming from him when I put him on a leaf to transfer him elsewhere. Is this a Western Spotted Orbweaver?

Hi Scott,
This is one of the harmless Orbweavers, but we cannot say for certain which species it is.
