Comments & ID Thoughts

Was taken around dusk. Kids were camping in the backyard. Southern New Hampshire. Spider crawled up outside of tent. I would guess it was about 1.5 inches long including the legs but obviously didn’t measure with a ruler. Too dark to see any color at all. All I have is a silhouette.

The shape looks like a female Fishing Spider. They climb flat surfaces very well. I’m glad you’re getting great camping weather!
