Comments & ID Thoughts

I only know it's a Orb spider, and I'm hazarding a guess at Arabesque Orb-weaver? Taken at 9 PM MST, in Lafayette Colorado. I found it just beginning web construction late this afternoon, and now it appears completed. The web stretches about 3 feet between a blue spruce and a mugo pine. The spider is about 3/4 inch in dia.
