Found this big one outside a friends house, any idea? It hangs out by her window, probably doing wonders for her arachnophobia xD
AS: it’s some kind of orb weaver, probably a barn or garden

My mother found this while I am away at college, would you happen to know what this lovely one is? 
AS: it’s a hard to tell for sure with this picture, but it’s the right size and shape for an Argiope!

Found this female cross orbweaver (Araneus diadematus) with a MASSIVE abdomen (pregnant?). Never seen one this huge! Moved her somewhere safe. :)
AS: wow she really is huge, she is probably going to lay an egg sac, she’s actually a Shamrock orb weaver, I’m glad you moved to a safe location :)
