yellow orb weaver
This female Tetragnatha extensa was suspended in a web just over the
water at Silver Lake in Brighton, Utah.   In the sunlight it was a glowing
 golden color
and it came out of the web and onto the dock to let me take
 a few pictures.  It obviously loves the Paparazzi. Carol Davis 9-7-2008

I was thrilled to find this spider because it was a
new species for me.
