A Cool Spider

We saw this spider when we stopped to pick Black-Eyed Susans on our nature walk yesterday.  It was probably 2 - 3 inches long.  I'm glad we didn't walk into it!

  1. I think that is a female Argiope, commonly called a corn spider or black and yellow garden spider.. The article I read indicated it is probably the largest spider most people will ever see. Up to about a 1" body and 3" leg span.
