is this a garden orb spider? we have one on our deck, right near the outdoor light where it can catch many flying bugs to eat – in St Louis, south city It is large, about 1 X 2″ including legs in a web about 12″ or more = damaged by today’s rain

My appreciation of spiders led my husband to overcome his severe arachnophobia. He takes photos of them for me too. Awesome!
