Need green spider ID

mikeg
Hi,

   I've seen this green, red, and yellow spider 4 times over the past 8 or so years. It's always in the late fall when I come across it. The first time was in mid-December on a large patch of snow, which struck me as quite unusual as the temperature was hovering around freezing. I'm curious as to what it is? green unknown spider

Hi!  Thank you for including the wonderful image.  This is a long-jawed orbweaver spider, Tetragnatha viridis.  There are many other species of Tetragnatha, but this is the only green one.
