Look who I found...........

......strolling across the garage floor!  He (I'm guessing he) was strutting along like he owned the place, red legs and all.  He is a red-legged purseweb spider (sphodros rufipes).  According to Wikipedia these are native to the Southeast US but have been spotted much further North.  They make a tunnel shaped web and rarely leave it except to mate.  No wonder he looked so preoccupied. Also, notice his pet ant walking along.
