Yard is over-run with them..
Looks like it escaped from a lab. Too bad it's not red and blue.
Orchard Orbweaver (Leucauge venusta)... usually refered to as an "Orchard Spider". Bites are rare and not dangerous except to those allergic.
Common on the East coast from Canada to Panama, sometimes found into central US.

lol the first thing i thought of was spiderman lolol
The webs look real nice with morning dew. if you can get ones without all the love bugs!
Probably just a typo.. but its "Orchard"
...and now that I'm looking at it... "Orchard" is a funny word.
Nah my spelling is crap lol.
Beautiful spider, we have some in Ohio that are general garden spiders, not as pretty as that though.
Yeah they're really beneficial, they eat all the nasty bad bugs.
I see.. yeah I was freaked out by it and my cousin made me "torch it" - I don't feel good about killing anything, really. It could of been a black widow - it's a living creature.
I'm glad they're beneficial too. Because they're every where, we wont have the bad bugs. As for the love bugs they are so annoying.
Thanks for the info too, guys!
My first thought though not helpful was...it's a "cool spider". Great colors!
