This is a closer picture of the red spider with a dark red web submitted earlier. Appears to be a female with an egg sack. We had to move her web to get to items behind it. You can see the red web.

Thank you for the extra photo. She has the red color on her legs and abdomen. Bacteria, fungi, and algae are natural possibilities.

What I can make out looks like an Orchard Orb-weaver, Leucauge venusta.
