Orb-weaver

This Orb-weaver spider has taken up residence on my front porch. Each evening it spins a new web only to be gone at first-light the next morning. Being nocturnal, it's difficult to photograph, but this particular one was very friendly and tolerated my camera being close. These colorful creatures provide us with the invaluable service of reducing the nighttime flying insects.
