Cool Spider!

Thought I'd share these pictures of a cool spider I saw in my yard yesterday. Check out how he looks like some kind of armored dinosaur! Is that a fancy rear-end, or what?
For those of you interested in what species it is, my old spider professor has identified it as "family Araneidae, genus Micrathena, either Micrathena gracilis or M. mitrata"
