Male Metepeira Orb Weaver
Genus Metepeira

This male desert orb weaver was hanging around my friend's trailer at Strawberry Reservoir
in Wasatch County, Utah. Whether it came with the trailer or resided at the reservoir is anybody's

He really seemed content to hang around the doorway of the trailer. There was a midge about 6 inches
away that must not have known it was in any danger.  © Carol Davis 7-3-2012
