Female Spinybacked Orbweaver in Honolua Bay, Maui, Hawaii. Scary but not poisonous.
Thanks for the photo! Everything is covered in ice and snow here, it’s nice to see an image of a much warmer place. This species would look scarier if they were larger. The first time I saw one (not locally) I was surprised by how little they are, they don’t look the way I imagined they would.
