Yellow Spider
Just wanted to tell you I just saw that spider for the first time, he/she is a long way from home...I live near Brockville, Ontario, Canada...unfortunately I didnt have my camera with me, which is always happening, very annoying..

 
Just saw this in Newmarket, Ontario
I was out walking my dog today, Sept 20, 2013 and came across this spider. Fortunately, I had my phone with me./Users/johnsexton/Pictures/iPhoto Library/Previews/2013/09/20/20130920-174459/Jc0eEuPbQf+BjvZdQ6ojqw/IMG_0279.jpg
