    I found this spider while gathering flowers for a bouquet from my garden. I'd never seen one like it. Sadly the picture isn't too clear because I managed to photo it through a glass. (Didn't want to kill it) Just wondering if anyone knows what it is, and if it bites. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

    Welcome to the Forum!
    My thanks for preserving the spider's life, and for being interested in who he/she is.
    Recommend this site (see link below)---it is an outstanding fount of information. The more you look, the more interesting it gets!
    You can click on the spider silhouette to left, which will take you to Araneae: you can post your photo for ID by these knowledgeable folks.
    Let us know if you get an ID!

    Thanks for the tip! I did post on BugGuide.net on June 18th. I just thought perhaps two sites might be more effective. I think it's probably a local, but friends were thinking it was a hitchhiker from elsewhere. I sure would like to know.
