Spider with meal - Araneus marmoreus

Spider with meal - Araneus marmoreus
Thornton, New Hampshire, USA
August 10, 2007
What kind of spider is with a hover fly as a meal?

Moved
Moved from Orb Weavers. Nice call, John, we agree.

Not an ID
But I wonder if maybe it could be a Marbled Orb Weaver (Araneus marmoreus). They seem to have a wide variety of patterns. Sorry, just a place to start.
