I believe this is a banded garden spider.


Yes, this is a nice ventral image of Argiope trifasciata. Thank you for saving her. I grew up in a farm town and I know what carnage combines can cause. That’s why the FDA allows animal bits in processed foods, like pasta sauce – within limits, of course. There is such a thing as too many insect legs in your ketchup. There are specific numbers per body part. Now I’m thinking differently about Shredded Wheat cereal.
