Spider - Dolomedes tenebrosus

This one deserves an award for the most creepy creature to come out of the firewood. Maybe it is another Dolomedes tenebrosus, like the two that I found over the summer?

Moved from ID Request. How lucky for you.... a beautiful spider during the winter. =]

 
Thanks Lynette
I have to admit, the red coloration on its legs is quite beautiful. I put it safely under a piece of bark to finish overwintering
