This is the precious lady I’ve been hosting for at least 3 days. She lives near my back porch light. I’m guessing the pickins are good there. Breakfast buffet if you will.
She’s quite a large specimen as far as Argiope aurantia are concerned. But her zipper web and stately demeanor have won me over. I’ve decided to let her live. She doesn’t like to be poked, but she’s always up for the paparazzi. Camera whore.
