What a beauty! *You must have a really good camera!


* = inside joke.

Really means: Photographer has exhibited excellent control of exposure, DOF, and background.

Most likely a female Yellow & Black Orb Weaver (Argiope aurantia).

yes,i'm sure it was a female because she had an egg sack about a foot from her web.it was about the size of a quarter when the little spiders came out they were so small i didnt see them at first.then a big rain and a freeze the next day.i wonder if any lived.tom

Male orb weavers are quite small compared to females.

Here are my only two photos of a Yellow & Black:

Maybe if you had fed her a few males she would have stayed? Nice photo. 8-)
