Nursery Web spider (blade life 2) - Pisaurina

Nursery Web spider (blade life 2) - Pisaurina
south Jersey, Salem County, New Jersey, USA
May 1, 2005
Size: 3/4 in
found out hiking looking for insects to photograph in their natural habitat. As a photographer, I try to capture the beauty of the subject rather then just the "specifics" of it's shape, size, and species.

creepy, brown, big, hairy,
that is so cool! God sure knows how to do stuff

Not Grass Spider
This appears to be one of the Nursery Web Spiders. Probably Pisaurina mira.
