Hi, all I can tell from the side view of it is that it appears to be a “widow “ type of spider. If you see another and would like a more specific identification we need close clear photos of its back and underside to see the colors and markings. These spiders usually hide in dark places and avoid having any contact with people. It might be out in the light in your photo because it was thirsty and wanted to drink from the water droplets.


I think it’s the Northern Black Widow.
