As far as orb weavers go, this species is small (only about .25 to .3 inches) …but they certainly make up for size in regard to beauty. They can be found all throughout North America. The 3 (sometimes 4) pairs of small black spots toward the rear end of the abdomen (only one visible in this photo) are diagnostic of this species. Photo by Glenn Marangelo on 9/15/19 in Missoula, MT.
