Orchard Orbweaver

Leucauge venusta


I believe this is Leucauge venusta - Orchard Orbweaver. I have two specimens in this group of photos; and I've seen many others of the same species around my home.


River front, deciduous trees and local plantings. The photos for this series are seen on daylillies and azalea.


This is a link to what I believe these to be--if you believe to be a different species, please correct me! Spiders are NOT my speciality.
