    Awwww shucks *blush* Thank you :)

    Spiders are a favorite subject of mine…Except when they wake me up in the middle of the night by walking across my leg…They end up outside…We have a spider friendly environment at our lodge.

    Thank you featherblue :)

    We have Huntsmen Spiders around here, NOT A FAN. Viscous little buggers. However, all the others are pretty cool, Orchard Orbweaver are amazing if you havn't seen them before.

    I'll second that! My older bro and I used to go out and catch spiders all the time. Good times. :)

    Personally, I like banana spiders.

    How big is it and where'd you find it? It looks kinda close, but not quite.

    Oh, and I have to say that "banana spider" probably isn't the technical term for it. It's just what we called them. We used to find them all the time at my grandparent's house. They were bigger than the average spiders we used to catch and they weren't hard to find. We always found their webs stretched between tall weeds down by the pond...at right about eye level. They're BRIGHT yellow all over with large black bands across they're body and legs. Very fun to play with.;D Your guy doesn't look very yellow, but it does have the darker bands. Maybe he's a long lost cousin. :giggle:

    Found it down near a pond in a 2' web. it was 1 1/2"nose to butt in size. I believe they are call corn spiders around here. The proper name in the book is yellow garden spider Argiope aurantia

    Banana spider is a loose term that refers to a group of Yellow Orb Weavers. You are probably thinking of the Golden orb weaver. They are HUGE with webs over 10 feet in diameter.
     [term]=giant%20huntman%20spider&filters[primary]=images

    The largest species of Wolf spider, very aggressive. Super fast.

    They are my favorite of all the spiders. They are a challenge to shoot because of their small size, and they have the habit of jumping on the lens.
