trashline orb weaver
I found lots of these tiny Trashline Orb Weavers all over Red Butte.  This one
 looked like it was a male because of the swollen pedipalps. © Carol Davis 10-7-2014

red phidippus audax
I thought this red-striped spider was a Phidippus johnsoni but it was, instead, another
first-year P. audax.  He was trying to balloon and was shooting out
silk all over the place, including at me. © Carol Davis 10-7-2014
