Spider Of Some Kind - Argiope aurantia

Spider Of Some Kind - Argiope aurantia
Mississippi River, Missouri/Illinois County, Illinois, USA
October 30, 2006
Size: Fairly big
Thanks to Eric for reminding me, I had almost forgotten that on our way back to the dock from the boat ride, the spider had spun a web inside the Arch and I got a shot of that, too.

It's a good thing that planes don't fly through there.

Spider in Arch
And I thought that the one I saw was quite large. :)
No Stabilimentum on the web, though. I would have thought that the wind across the river would have required it.
