Digging in a neglected bit of flower bed to plant a recently purchased blue salvia , I disturbed this fine spider, which sat quietly while I went inside to fetch my camera. As usual, no amount of fiddling will make me happy with the result (surely the overall body color was darker, and the soil has a redder clay tinge to it), but I'm pleased to have a record of our encounter. The overall size of this spider, including legs, was approximately 2 inches or perhaps less.
