In the Yard

According to Bev Wigney's spider gallery of beautiful photographs this lovely specimen found in the garden today is an Agriope Argiope aurantia. (See also What's That Bug.) Note the seam-like structure (called a stabilimentum according to What's That Bug) running down the middle of the web.

The red squirrel is an occasional, usually cross visitor to the Norway maple beside the house.
