A Black and Yellow Argiope Spider

Insects 022

A Black and Yellow Argiope Spider that I fond up to my sisters house in Cortland NY. I have seen this spider all over the place hear in New York State and Pennsylvania this time of year, They are quit numerous now. I thought that I would post this fella today and dedicate it to my friend Laurie from Australia who had a dream recently with a large spider in it. This one is not comparable to his but it is large enough. Laurie runs a couple of well put together, wonderful blogs on his surrounding area and such. He is also a great story teller that works out of his writers room that I enjoy very much and follow. If anyone is interested about his work, laurie27wsmith.wordpress.com “I love his kangaroos shoots that he gets off his front porch too”.

    We have a similar spider in England Argiope Brunichii, at least I think that’s how you spell it. It is called a wasp spider and creates a really distinctive zig zag down the middle of its web
