CarolSnowMilne-Found out hiking in the park. I don't think I could relocate it if I tried but I may be able to find another one. So, front and back are needed for positive id? I thought it was just the back that showed the markings needed. Will try to photograph both sides from now on. Thanks!

CarolSnowMilne 8 years ago Same or different. It is definitely an Orb Weaver. Can you get a photo of the other side tonight.
