It’s a perfectly posed arachnid from Avalus who says,
This spider found herself caught in glassware one morning in our lab. I contained it with a glass funnel to take the photo and released it.
I’ll bet that spider tells the story of this adventure at all the spider gatherings. Not everyone will believe her.
The photo is below the fold
It has pretty markings.

And also legs that go on and on.
She looks like a painting!
Yes, sadly the photograph is blurry. The spider was pretty large, nearly 6 cm with legs.
Lovely spider. Last week I found two tiny jumping spiders in the lab. Tricky to catch those cuties and release them outside, they’re called “jumping” for a reason!
