Yellow orb weaver
I though you might be interested to know that I found this very
unusual spider in Des Moines, IA. I have never seen one before.

Marbled Orb Weaver ID
Thank you for the ID. This spider should be nicknamed the Halloween Spider since they are always photographed this time of year.

ID Request
Is this a Araneus diadematus otherwise known as an orb spider? Thank you.
