Araneus cingulatus

Araneus cingulatus


I found him in the bed of my truck with my fire wood but specifically on a teal plastic bucket that I had in the back I feel like it was attracted to the color? Seem to be a smaller spider so maybe a baby still or youth.. Very beautiful. I let it get of into the grass where I was camping. This is in East TN . Specifically at Loyston Point Campground Andersonville Tennessee. That's when I found it but not sure when it actually got in the bed of my truck? Could have be Knoxville TN where I am from.
