I’m guessing Eriophora ravilla.


Yes, probably. The camera flash hides the colors, but it has hairy legs, distally, which is usually Neoscona or Eriophora. BTW, Kelly Anne, a way to work around that is to shut off the camera flash and use a lantern or dim flashlight as the light source. The iPhone 10 and up can take good photos in dim light, but I’m not willing to trade in my cheap busted up phone for an expensive phone that I’ll break promptly…..so I find other methods. I need to experiment with using mirrors more.
