Isn't this the COOLEST Spider??? I call her "Barbara".

This is an Orchard Orbweaver Spider (thanks, Melinda, for finding the name out for me!)  I think she is fascinating looking!  Creepy, but fascinating.  And, her web is wonderful!  I've named her "Barbara".I got this name from my Aunt, who gave the name of Barbara to a spider that would show up on her bathroom sink every morning.  
Barbara has the most remarkable color and makes these amazing webs.  Every time I go out to visit Babs, she is tirelessly working on that web.  I'm just glad I've never walked through it!   I keep thinking that Barbara will disappear, but she's still there, enjoying the home she's made for herself.  I enjoy it too -- at least watching her in it.  Personally, I think it would be a lonely life, only living for the next meal to make it appearance in your web.  

Enjoy these pictures of Barbara!  You can click on each one to enlarge it.
