Garden Spider

ewwwwwwweeeeew. I have never been fond of these, but I had the chance to take this pic w/my groovy new camera. So, I am sharing it with you, in all its technicolor glory.

Name: Argiope aurantica, commonly called the Golden Orb-weaver , Yellow Garden Orbweaver, or Writing Spider.

I especially love his zigzag silk signature.
