Leucauge argyrobapta, Mabel Orchard Orbweavers. Male and female approaching each other to mate. This pic was taken in the fiberglass shell of some kind of ATV sitting near a storage area of a golf course. No one questioned me about why I was crouching in it for a long time.

Actually the male, right side of pic, approached the female. She stayed in the center and occasionally made some gestures. The male was successful and left unharmed.
