This summer has brought in some different spiders in our area. In my yard I saw this guy. An Orchard Orb Weaver. I walked by it a few times before realizing this was very unique looking. Got my camera and took some shots. Just a couple weeks ago I found a smaller one. This is not a harmful spider and it somewhat reminds me of a watermelon. The big ones we used to get. Very cool. And I must say it does a fantastic job of catching things.
