Photographer's Note

The Black and Yellow Argiope is a common orb web spider.

Female spiders are much larger than males, growing almost an inch and a half long. Males grow about 3/4 inch long.

Black and Yellow Argiopes live in fields and gardens. They can be found on shrubs, tall plants, and flowers.

The web of this spider spirals out from the center and can be two feet across. The female builds the large web, and a male will build a smaller web on the outer part of her web. The male's web is a thick zig-zag of white silk.
