Spiny-Backed Orbweaver

Gasteracantha cancriformis


This spider had just caught a fly in its web. It is not very visible in the picture unless you zoom in. I was in a hurry when I took this picture, so I did not have time to adjust equipment to get closer.


The web of this spider was made between two small bushes along a sidewalk.
