Nursery web spider - Tinus peregrinus

Nursery web spider - Tinus peregrinus
Balmorhea Lake, Reeves County, Texas, USA
June 2, 2016
Discovered this lovely spider under an aged concrete picnic bench near the lake's main office. It didn't seem to mind its neighbors, a couple of dictynids who had set up shop nearby.

One thing that fascinates me about spiders, especially the cool ones, is that they can be found in the most ordinary spots, places you'd never bother to look in.
