Arrow-Shaped Micrathena (Athens, PA)

Yesterday afternoon I went into the yard to gather mint leaves so I could make myself some tea, and I found this beauty hanging out on one of the mint plants; an arrow-shaped micrathena! This is the time of year when they'll start showing up in yards, gardens, and forests. They are not dangerous to people, and are beneficial to the wild spaces they call home. The arrow-shaped micrathena is one among a great variety of eight-legged web-spinning neighbors to appreciate this time of year.
