Is that a banana spider? I'm all creeped out just lookin' at the picture of that fella, I couldn't stand for him to be on my back porch!
I think that it is. He's just outside the back porch in a back corner. We all know not to go over there now that he's taken residence. Hate to bother him, he worked so hard making that elaborate web. :-)
He is beautiful and creepy at the same time. As long as spiders keep out side, there safe for me, except black widows.Happy Wednesday April! Visiting from voiceBoksThanks, Becky Janehttp://riseaboveyourlimits.blogspot.com/
Holy cow! They don't make 'em like that here in Northern IL! Happy Wednesday from a fellow voiceBoks member!
I do not like spiders, generally, but I love these! They are so pretty and their webs are beautiful. Here's a link to some info if you want to share it with your kidshttp://www.fcps.edu/islandcreekes/ecology/black_and_yellow_argiope.htm
What a beautiful photo! We usually have the common spiders here but the other day dd found a web that was quite intricate in the center. I wonder what spider made it.Spiders are very helpful but still creep me out lol.

Wow! Cool and creepy! Those are great pictures.
The spider must be very popular, my husband sent me the same picture from our garden to my phone of this huge type of spider. Love the webbing.BlessingsDiane
