237 - Orb-weaver Spider

From 365 Project
I think this is a Garden Orb-weaver Spider. The main body is more than an inch long. She has been building this spectacular web each evening in my backyard and then takes it all down and retreats to a safe spot under a garden lantern until the next night. @Pleyades - I think this looks closer to your spider from last week rather than the wolf spider. Canon G10, 1/60sec @ f/4.5, ISO 400.

No, it actually was a wolf spider- we finally caught it...

I can't believe the Orb-weaver spider builds that entire web every night. Interesting!
