Argiope aurantia, or zipper spider

Zipper spiders, or Argiope aurantia, spin spectacular webs. This one was strung on the shrubs in front of my front porch. When I saw the spider, I fetched the new camera, which was outfitted with a Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. I put the camera on a tripod and took a few wide shots to showcase the web. I wanted to get closer so I changed out to the macro lens. zipper spider, nature, animals-7682

Here’s the best one with the macro. It was taken from the back side of the web. Check out the threads in the web.
