    I'm not sure what kind of spider this is... it must be some kind of a Weaver Spider.
    It is sitting out in a plant outside...

    Ummm, I think you live in a spot that's full of creepy crawlies, that's what I think.

    That's actually a pretty cool lookin' spider.

    We have those big yellow guys, too, Chris. I think he's your "garden-variety" harmless garden spider....don't know the correct term.

    They make huuuuuuuge webs and are fun to watch. (Even for people like me with a fear of spiders!) :lol:

    You drew me out of lurker status with this nice spider shot. :)

    I believe it's a sub-adult Argiope aurantia (Yellow Garden Spider). Beautiful shot!

    Cheers,
    David

    Whatever kind of spider this one is, it is very beautiful and its web the most artistic I have ever seen done by a spider.
    And your photo shows the nicest of colours. Very nice! I like it a lot!
