Genus Araneus Orb Weaver Spider - Brown and Orange by 

I couldn’t quite get this down to species, but I’m sure it is from the genus Araneus. The colors were so handsome! There are about 650 species of Araneids – fairly common spiders.

This picture was taken in September of 2010, as I recall. The data are lost – arghhh., and I know it was at the Green Lane Reservoir in Red Hill, Pennsylvania, USA.

You can get some general information on these interesting spiders at:

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
