Spider & Last Night's Dream; Secret Agent

I was taken away from my usual job to become a secret agent. I was included in a group of a few other trainees, supervised by one or two experienced agents. At one point I saw my former manager, smirking at me. We all went out on a mini-assignment as part of our training. Someone I knew from my regular life was there, making me fear that my cover had been blown. According to those in charge, however, it was no big deal.

This spider (about 1/2" in length,) was kind enough to pose for me on our living room window today. If anyone is familiar with this kind of spider, I'd love to know what it is. Our spider guide book is too generalized to offer much information, unfortunately.

I like your post today. And the spiders I have around here are almost always outside and those that hang around doorways and windows end up getting a name. I named the last one on our patio, last summer, "Edith" and spoke to her when going out or coming in. I wonder if she understood.

I've seen this type of spider before but I don't know it's name.

What a fascinating dream! Unfortunately I've just been having a lot of nightmares lately.
I don't know what kind of spider that is, but it's a beautiful shot! I love the patterns on the window behind it.

Lincoln; I don't mind spiders & if they take up residence inside my home I'll leave them be as long as they return the favor. Never thought to name them, though!

Charles; I proclaim him "Larry." *L*

Lisa; I was glad that my camera actually focused on the spider. More often than not it won't "see" it & focuses instead on the background.
Sorry to hear about your nightmares. Any leads on what they might mean?
