Yes, I think you’re correct. I think it is male, which is why it looks small and thin. Male spiders are photographed much less often than females because they are small, have shorter life spans, make tiny webs, and they don’t settle down in one place. I don’t remember ever seeing a photo of a male of this species. I’ll bookmark your photo to add it to our gallery when we have the chance. Thank you for submitting it!
