I thought orb weaver, or banana...it's about 6" or more from tip to tip. Sorry I couldn't get closer -- Helen was freaking out over it and she was taking the pic - I tried to get closer but she was yelling at me not to [Big Grin]

Buckle up! It makes it harder for the aliens to suck you out of your car!

[Big Grin] sorry!

It was funny - I was trying to hold it still with the wind blowing...and hit it's leg by accident with the cardboard..so it started running up the web...just as helen was taking the 1st picture....

Is it this? There are several kinds. Just look and you will know which one it is. Look on the second page about middle ways under argiope.

Black and Yellow Argiope / Argiope aurantia

I call them the Alien Spiders...
if you look at the black and yellow,
it looks like an alien painted on... [thumb]

We had 7 of them in my little space in the middle
of my property last summer... the kids got a
kick out of it everyday to go check them and
see how and what they were doing.
The littlest wasn't too crazy to get too close
but the oldest is getting braver as long as
he stands behind mom to look...

I love them in my garden and wish more would come..

I didn't get to see any this year, but I am
seeing a ton of huge spiders with webs catching
lot's of goodies...

I love spraying water on their webs or the dew
in the morning time and seeing them stand out.
Sooooooooo pretty..

Commonly called a garden spider. Hence always seen in gardens.

I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!

Hey, I found one in my yard this morning.. took a couple snaps of it, posted in the critter forum. Mine looks a wee bit different, but I'm sure it's the same family. It even has the zigzag in it's web. They really do look like there's an alien on thier back! But mine is just all stripey.
