Comments & ID Thoughts

I saw this spider in the mudroom, between the front door and the glass storm door. It had been about 40-50 degrees F out today, but wad very damp and foggy at night. He tried to come into the house when I opened the door to let the dogs out. I live very near the beach on a narrow peninsula. Seemed all black, semi aggressive but when I first pit the glass over it the spider froze.
