Spinybacked orbweaver (Gasteracantha cancriformis)
These things are everywhere
Yes, even at fast food restaurants! 🙂 I noticed that about them to. If you find one, you can find more. They seem to really like handrails. I found a wooden scenic stairway view tower in Florida covered with their little orb webs. The challenge is to try to find them in other colors. The abdomens can be white, black, or yellow. The spines can be red and black.
I’ve only seen a couple around here in different colors, they are almost always white and black. Usually the ones I saw here were in between walls and objects such as garbage cans and benches, but in other places their webs can be giant and in the middle of the open. A little annoying sometimes, but I quite like these guys 🙂
I just realized that I posted this 4 times, oops
