All Legs

Here is one from a couple of weeks ago. We have been so busy getting pictures out from our weekend trials and getting ready for our Galapagos trip that I hadn't got it posted. This is a Black and Yellow Argiope, a common orb web spider. Orb web means it spins a web like a circle. This is the female - which at almost an inch and a half is considerably larger than the male. I really liked the colors.
