Orb weaver
Sue,

You image was a perfect match to a spider we found today in Bartlett, Illinois. The colour was overall lighter brown but the back pattern matched almost perfectly. Thank you for the excellent image.

We found our little friend along the house. We are currently doing some remodeling and found the web as we were cleaning up around the cable box.

Thanks again,

Floyd Del Muro
