This medium-sized spider retreated to a hiding spot below some leaves when I disturbed her web.
Caught and released as part of a Project Que educational outing.
not flowered yet. Hope I can get back down there to check soon. Seen in a low valley. Formerly swamplands but beaver dam is gone now and the area is no longer under water but creek is very near. This plant was about 4 foot tall.
Floater. Found dead in wetland; no signs of predation or obvious illness.
