Black and Yellow Garden Spider

Remnants of Tropical Storm Lee wet the area this morning. Combine that with a vet appointment for the new English Springer Spaniel puppy and I didn’t get a chance to get out for a paddle or hike today. I hate to let a day-off go by without making some images so when the rain let up and the light got soft enough I went for a backyard photo safari. While not the most exotic creature to photograph in the world this Black and Yellow Garden Spider made a willing model. The Garden Spider, Argiope aurantia, is common in the lower 48 state as well as Hawaii and Southern Canada. They can also be found in Mexico and Central America. Other common names for this spider are the Writing Spider or Corn Spider.

    I have so many spider’s around my house, that I’m afraid to go outside. If I went out on my front porch, there are 20 to 30 big brown spider’s and I don’t know what kind they are.
