A favorite spider of mine, Orchard Orb Weaver, a type of Orb spider. I’ve been blessed to see them many times in my town as well as across the border into Missouri.
They create webs that insects fall into…making it often harder to notice as they’re flat when viewed head on….rather then a large orb in your face. I’ve often seen them when looking up with sunlight shining thru and just shooting green and gold sparks all over.
