Finally got a decent picture of an orchard orbweaver spider- there's lots in the garden this year, and we are careful not to disturb them.
I also have many of these brown spiders or maybe it's daddy-long-legs (here on a borage plant).
Wolf spiders and jumping spiders are among our favorites.
I found this jumping spider on some clothing after hanging out laundry. Tried to get a detailed photo- when the camera got really close that tiny spider would lift its front legs towards the lens- threatening?- and then it leaped onto my hand, or my camera! I kept putting it back on the cloth to try for the picture but jumped on me repeatedly.
