Cobweb spider? - Neottiura bimaculata - male

Cobweb spider? - Neottiura bimaculata - Male
Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah, USA
June 19, 2008
Size: 2 mm.
I saw the tiny male of this pair spinning little webs through my rose bush so I got a few bad shots and then I saw him duck under a leaf and when I checked it out–there was a female. He proceeded to mate with her and afterwards spun more webs in the leaves in her immediate vicinity (maybe to protect her?) and then he just kind of wandered off. Trying to photograph both of them on the underside of leaf was not easy and the flash made the female way too bright in most shots.
