Cobweb Spider  (two photos)
Theridion melanurum

theridion melanurum
My neighbor, Kaden Jenson, found this tiny spider next to my back door and called my
 attention to it.  Nice find!  I had to use a flash because of the lighting. © Carol Davis, 6-6-2012

cobweb spider
You can see a deep pit on the thorax in this shot.  Cobweb spider webs are always full of insect parts because they
will tackle just about anything, even other spiders. This one was looking for a female to party with, no doubt.
 I have  to apologize for the background on this photo but this is the best I could do on cleanup. He picked a dirty
 spot to cross. © Carol Davis, 6-6-2012
