Golden Silk Spider

Dear Devon,
This is a Golden Silk Spider,
Nephila clavipes, a species known for its very strong silk webbing that is golden in color.  Because of their shape and color, they are sometimes called Banana Spiders, a common name also shared with an unrelated Huntsman Spider.

Location: Alpharetta, Georgia
