Tetragnathid

I was photographing a tree in a field with the 75-300 zoom lens and I noticed something in front of me. I pulled the focus to see a grass stem with a spider on the end. Looks like a species of Tetragnatha to me.

Steatoda bipunctata

My daughter found this in the kitchen yesterday, and I had a fun time chasing it to get some decent photographs of it!
Many thanks to GRB on arachnophiles for the info!
