Unseasonably warm here yesterday.
Anyone know what kind of spider this is?

Saw the first Mourning Cloak butterflies here yesterday and the Silver Maple, Aspen, and Willows are all blooming. The American Woodcocks are calling morning and evening and Robins, Killdeers, Grackles, and Red-wing Blackbirds are all here and in full song.

I'm going to say "running crab spider" because of the way it's stretched out. Heaven knows I've been wrong about this kind of thing before, but that's my best guess.

Thanks Marnie. I believe you are correct. The genus name seems to beTibellus and the one in my book that looks most like this one is Tibellus oblongus.
Thanks again for your input!
