Spiny Orb-Weaver

Gasteracantha cancriformis

Description:

These gorgeous orb weavers have red spines that make them distinct from other spiders in Florida. They're vibrant and make beautiful webs, as seen in the last picture (with @LealikiKanoa in the back)

Habitat:

My herb garden

Notes:

This particular spider was showing very territorial displays, like using his web to go down and climb back up.
