Spider - Araneus cingulatus

Spider - Araneus cingulatus
Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio, USA
August 6, 2013
It had a single strand of web running from a railing to a chair. I got a quick picture and then it retreated. I don't know if it was making a more complex web and I interrupted it or if it just uses the single strand. Have not seen it since.
