Description From what I can tell, this pretty lady is a banana spider or golden silk orb-weaver. She had built her web across a hiking path I was exploring.
If you're considering purchasing a print of this photo, I recommend you select Photo Glossy or Photo Luster for the paper -- for a little extra, it gives photos a much richer look than the inexpensive Matte.
C McLaughlin, Southwest Florida Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement I got my first digital camera after Hurricane Charley breezed through my town and created a bunch of turmoil in my life. The camera gave me something creative with which to occupy my mind during that difficult time. I now spend a lot of my free moments wandering around taking pictures of sunsets and local wildlife.
I also publish a little photocomic that updates three times a week, so check out my site at www.cmcl.net to see more photos combined with offbeat conversations from my life.
