Long-jawed Orb Weaver
Genus Tetragnatha

long-jawed orb weaver
There are all kinds of patterns on these Long-jawed Orb Weavers
 and I thought this one was particularly
beautiful with X on the
 carapace and the dark line halfway down the outlined abdomen. 
I found it near
some water at the Jordanelle Dam wetlands. I had
to stretch out over the marsh to take the photo so it needed
a lot of
 sharpening to get it looking halfway decent. © Carol D
