Long-jawed orbweaver, genus Tetragnatha.


Really beautiful pic. I saw my first Tetragnatha this year. They are lovely little things. They tend to build their delicate webs almost parallel to the ground. My lass was only interested in small gnat like flies. Anything larger would fly straight through and punch a hole in her web. But that’s where her long abdomen would come in handy. She was able to swing it side to side to very quickly darn the hole.
