Black and Yellow Garden Spider in Union, Kentucky

Michelle pointed out this black and yellow garden spider and I had to get a few photos. This is the first time I’ve actually seen one of these in person, and the research I’ve done says they’re fairly common. Anyway, it’s just beautiful with the vibrant yellow against such a deep black. And the center of the web almost resembles a lightening bolt how it’s woven. Pretty cool spider with bold energy. I hope you enjoy the photos.Screen Shot 2013-09-15 at 10.11.54 AM Screen Shot 2013-09-15 at 10.11.41 AM Screen Shot 2013-09-15 at 10.11.10 AM Screen Shot 2013-09-15 at 10.10.41 AM
