Orb-Weaver

I've always known these lovely ladies as Banana Spiders. The males are very small and nondescript compared to their more sizable and colorful mates. The official name for them is golden silk orb-weaver. We made friends with many of them on our trip to Red Creek in Mississippi. This was the largest of the bevy of beauties we encountered.
