Arboreal Orbweaver

Neoscona crucifera


She was fuzzy and looked super healthy!


Under the awning of a public pavilion on a very high overlook over a river, in mixed but mostly deciduous forest at sundown.


She was a big one, not like yellow and black garden spider big, but quite eye catching. Another great resource can be found here: https://www.insectidentification.org/ins...
