There are so many of these spiders near my home always very large and they make large webs that can extend from the roof to the ground of the 2 story condo building they also make them from the trees or bushes
Hi, this is Trichonephila clavipes, a Golden Silk Orbweaver. They are relatively very large for American web spiders. The web silk is a golden color and there are circles (orbs) in the pattern of their webs. That’s where their common name comes from. They are big, brightly colored, weirdly shaped, and move very quickly. Thankfully they are not medically dangerous to people! Getting your face covered in web is the only downside. I watched one react to prey hitting her web this summer, it was amazing how quickly she grabbed, killed, and wrapped the prey!
