black and yellow garden spider

Argiope aurantia


The black and yellow garden spider is often confused with the golden silk orb weaver the locals call the banana spider. So often locals will call this one a banana spider which it isn't. You can tell the difference if you set them side by side. Also the black and yellow garden spider has the zip line in the web.
