Porch Spider  - Pisaurina mira

Porch Spider - Pisaurina mira
Cedar Creek, Bastrop County, Texas, USA
April 22, 2016
Size: Approximately 2 inches
This appears to be a Nursery Web Spider. I found it on the railing of my front porch. We've had a ton of rain in the last few days. It seemed to be looking for a dry place to stay for awhile.
