Dear Daniel~
A longjawed orbweaver, I presume, but Tetragnatha sp. is as far as I could get. This spider was in this exact same position on this asclepias tuberosa every time I passed it for about 48 hours, after which I could no longer find it.
Have a beautiful day!

Hi Dori,
We agree that this appears to be a Long-Jawed Orbweaver.  Your milkweed does have a diverse ecosystem occupying it.
