Black orb-weaver spider with spiky abdomen; this species may also be white or yellow with black markings.
Thanks, everyone! I spent a lot of time teaching other gardeners not to be afraid of this spider, she definitely is alien-looking. But eventually they all got to like her, she kept the mosquitoes and flies away!
Great spot! These are high on my "must see" list!
Wow, agree with Ava :)
Shivers! This looks like an alien from a Sci-Fi movie. Excellent photo!
