Comments & ID Thoughts

Araneus diadematus, a Cross Orbweaver, female, dorsal image. I finally found one! She has her web between branches of a dogwood tree over my bryophytes garden of ferns, moss, other primitive plants in a wet part of my yard with a high water table. Lots of insects and spiders there.

Did you take this at night?

You ever seen an exhibit with minerals under different wavelengths, and they turn different colors? It’s trippy.

Is this maybe a Pumpkin Spider? Araneus Diadematus? A common garden Orb Weaver.

That’s right. I was thinking of the Marbled Orbweaver.
