Comments & ID Thoughts

Micrathena gracilis, a Spiny Micrathena. We don't already have this spider for South Carolina. I think I have the second submission. She was in a web around 1PM. She was in dense dark foliage of large trees and greenbrier vines. I moved her to foliage for the photo. Are they nocturnal or active during the day if it is dark?
