Comments & ID Thoughts

I’ve never see one like this. It was on the car. Spotted in Canyon Lake, TX. I was told it’s a type of Orb Weaver either a Star-Bellied Weaver, as one person called it, or perhaps a spiny-backed weaver as another person called it but it doesn’t match either of those photographs online. It was very small, approximately the size of a quarter.
