Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I am guessing it's an orb weaver but cannot find another one like it in any images. Though Canada is not on your list of countries, we are an independent country from the USA, with spiders. This photo was taken in Alberta, Canada.

Hi, I think she’s a shamrock orbweaver, Araneus trifolium. They have black and white banded legs and the abdomen can be peach-colored and fuzzy. The colors of their abdomens can vary a lot, which makes it hard to identify them from looking at guide photos.
