Thanks Karen! I took so many photos and only this came out! I think it is 1/8 - 1/4 inch at the most including legs. Smaller than trash line spider! It moved around a lot. I found quite a few of these, but almost impossible to photograph. But what is it?

I can't seem to ID this little spider 1/4 inch. It is either a Marbled Orb Weaver baby or a Furrow Orb Weaver (although these are usually nocturnal until recently).
