In the last couple of weeks, we (in the Baltimore area) have seen a dramatic increase in the number of Orb-weaver spiders (Neoscona crucifera). Several have taken up residence in and around my backyard, building large webs between limbs and structures. This one decided to build a web near the backdoor, and was kind enough to stay still for a portrait in silhouette.
