Baby Golden Silk Orbweaver - Nephila clavipes - female

Baby Golden Silk Orbweaver - Nephila clavipes - Female
Summerville, Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
May 14, 2015
Size: ~8 mm (body length)
This is the most mature one that I have seen so far this season, and the youngest I have seen with obvious Nephila clavipes characteristics.

Unfortunately, by the time I managed to find my tripod, I had lost the best natural lighting.
