Argiope aurantia


Yellow Garden Spider wrapping it's prey in a cocoon. The prey looks to be some type of bee, wasp or hornet.


Woodland trail with small field openings. There was also a small pond a few meters away from where this spider was found.


The web of the yellow garden spider is distinctive: a circular shape up to 2 feet (60 cm) in diameter, with a dense zigzag of silk in the center
