Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider had his first web destroyed by the wind then built another web further down my on my deck. Never saw one like this. Wondered if anyone could ID him?

Hi, this is an Orb-weaver (Araneidae). Tentatively just going by the distinctive appearance of the legs and an assumption that this is a decent sized orb-weaver … looks like Araneus marmoreus. 🙂
