Black and Yellow Argiope, Argiope aurantia. 🙂

Eebee

I found this large beauty out front doing her thing in low cut holly bushes. What interests me is the zigzag white thing that appears in one of these photos also. I am in Charlotte, NC.
It seems the spider(s) must produce these things themselves.
Is this possible? Thank you.
