Orb Weaver - Metellina segmentata - Male
DeCoursey Park, Pierce County, Washington, USA
October 22, 2007
I found a bunch of these living near the lake. In some cases they were living in close proximity to some very large female cross spiders. However, nearly every one of these spiders had a male close by. I've never seen so many female and male pairs in one area.
