Neoscona domiciliorum, 08 September 2013

Neoscona domiciliorum, the Red-femured spotted orbweaver;
Volusia county, Florida (08 September 2013).

Orbweavers are fantastic. The little ones rock, the big ones rule. This is one of the larger ones, the Red-femured spotted orbweaver. They have a propensity for spinning a fairly large web over somewhat open areas in hardwood-laden environments. I often come across them early in the morning — after what must’ve been a cozy night’s work.
