Black & Yellow Spider
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The spider species Argiope aurantia is commonly known as the Black and Yellow Garden Spider, Writing Spider, or Corn Spider. It is common to the lower 48 of the United States, Hawaii, southern Canada, Mexico, and Central America. They have distinctive yellow and black markings on their abdomens and a mostly white cephalothorax. Males range from .2 to .35 inches (5–9 mm); females from .75 to 1.1 inches (19–28 mm). Like other members of Argiope they are considered harmless to humans.|

This Argiope is really impressing. You managed well the exposition but I would have tried to shrink the DOF by having the spider perfectly perpendicular to me and then by increasing the aperture (in order to get a bg more blurred).
Gaj, this is a great shot of this Orb Weaver. Excellent shot. Thanks so much for your comments on my Cicada, I appreciate it very much.
