I can't seem to get this in the right place
well at least I got it in the right family.

Sorry about that

(not computer savy)

Moved for you -
it's a bit more complicated right now with the BugGuide search feature not working, but I tagged it, then opened Google in another window and used Google to search to the right page for this species(I used keywords Argiope and BugGuide), then moved the tagged image there.

Nice shot!

We often use the taxonomy tab to drill down to the page we want. It's a great feature as long as there aren't too many sub families or tribes to try to fight your way through, but then we just choose the show all option.

Your taxonomy is stronger than mine, J & J
- if I don't know what tribe etc. to look under, that takes me a while. A better learning experience when I do take the time to do it, though.

I didn't know about "show all" - I'll have to try that.

Thank-you moving it to the right place

and thank-you for the compliment on the shot. I had to get up in her face for that one ^_^.
