Spined Micrathena

Micrathena gracilis


A followup on my spotting here: She was, in fact, very pregnant in the first spotting, and now she is showing off her slim, spiked figure once more. She is also quite more active, and I had a harder time taking a picture of her.


Strung between privet shrubs in our backyard, a mixed deciduous forested residential area. This corner stays mostly in the shade.
