I've never seen ANY SPider hold it's legs like that. And while I'm no expert, and after all, what else could it be?

Even so, this is a startlingly good picture and you might want to get an id from some hot shot entimologist...

Not much of a setup....used the closeup setting on my Kodak Z740. Held the camera to where I didn't think he would get me (lol) and took the photo...Lighting was great because of being outdoors....probably would of gotten a better pic if I used the tripod....

It's definitely a spider. It's from the orb weaver family. I believe they call it a black and yellow agriope as seen in the left picture here.

Never doubted that it was a spider, but I've never seen a spider hold its legs like which conclusively proves that I've never seen a spider hold its legs like that.

But oddly enough your link does, which means my preceding statement is now outdated by events...:?
