Clicky to zoom.








This monster is just outside my bedroom window.  It is a female Argiope aurantia, the Corn Spider or Black and Yellow Garden Spider



Getting these photos was a real bother.  It's so humid outside my camera fogged up the instant I stepped outside, so had to leave my camera on the deck for a while to acclimate.  Then I had to hurry with the pictures because of a sudden thunderstorm.
