Comments & ID Thoughts

Was sitting on my back porch when suddenly this little creature decided to jump on my arm and say hello, I put it on the table to study, it seemed kind of curious about what I was doing as I took photos and talked to it, it even jumped onto my hand when I put my hand out (which I wasn’t expecting and kind of panicked for fear of getting bitten!!) wondering if anyone knows what type of spider this is and if they can maybe tell gender as I see a lot of these guys, usually hanging out on my porch but I don’t ever see cob webs, more like the silk they produce going from one spot to another as if for traveling purposes
