Can you please tell me what kind of spider this is in the photograph? We saw him (her?) at Jesse H. Jones Park in Houston, TX in October of this year. I took the photos.
Thank you very much!

Dear Rick,
This jewel-like little beauty is an Orchard Spider,
Leucauge venusta, one of the harmless Long-Jawed Orbweavers in the family Tetragnathidae.
