Random spider post

Here are some spiders that I either couldn't identify, or I figured they were probably ones that I'd shown in the 280 project already. Spiders are always good anyway, so enjoy:

This little one has bagged a honeybee, complete with saddlebags loaded with pollen.

This beauty is probably a male Agelenid spider, but I didn't get a shot of the eye arrangement to be sure.

I noticed this cross orbweaver at a cookout yesterday. I forget that not everyone is as excited to see them as I am. I should carry a container to rescue unwanted spiders from ungrateful homeowners and party hosts.

She bites her prey but she is very unlikely to bite a human. You can safely move her by trying to wrangle her into a cup. Or you could just disturb her slightly, and she will run to her refuge (a little hiding place at the end of one of her web's support lines). Then just sweep the web away--they rebuild frequently anyway so don't feel bad about making work for her.
