Actually, specifically, it's the Argiope trifasciata, or banded garden spider.

We've had one of those in our front shrubs for about a month now. Does this one have zig-zag "writing" in its web? We used to call them "writing spiders" back in the day.

As kids, we'd throw grasshoppers into their webs abd watch them eat. Pretty fun stuff.

thoses suckers get pretty big, there was a pond out by my old place in IA that you could find them around.

you could find a new one Just about every step you took

they had that "writing" of which someone spoke...it almost looked like a cross, I used to think they were the St. Andrews cross spider, but i guess they aren't

Spider != "bug"

Spider = Arachnid

Insect = Bug

Bug = 6 legs

Arachnid = 8 legs

We got lots of them around here this time of year when they've matured. They're pretty harmless and look like they must eat tons of bugs, so I let 'em do their thing as long as they're not in a position that I might walk through in the a.m. pre-coffee.
