Default Spider

Do you know how hard it is to take a decent shot of a spider at night - with a flash?? Next time I'll try the tripod. Or should I say try pod?









I know fall season is coming soon when these fuzzy guys start building their webs on our porch.

No, that's an orb weaver Araneidae. The garden spider is a different species.
