Handsome leaf living spider - Pisaurina mira

Handsome leaf living spider - Pisaurina mira
Lawrence, Douglas County, Kansas, USA
September 27, 2015
Size: roughly 1cm bobdy
Spider was living between two leaves. A very active spider. When I tried coaxing it out of its shelter it would come out but then zip right back between the leaves before I could get a clear picture. Finally I coaxed it out and reached around with one hand while I took this picture one handed.
