Montgomery County, Ohio, USA
May 11, 2018
Size: 14mm
Found in my window. I haven't seen many large spiders here, so I this was an exciting find at a legspan of ~6cm (14mm body length). It was far more chill than the last non-juvenile nursery web spider I found. It did do a little bit of the goofy hopping that they seem to do though.

Larger versions + a couple more photos viewable here.
