the spider...

This little big guy girl has been living on the back porch for a couple weeks now. At first all I noticed was the 2-3 foot wide web of beauty, but then I other I finally saw the spider creating these masterpieces. I have tried to take pictures of the webs but I can't seem to get it on camera.


Does anyone know what kind it is? Its abdomen is about the size of a dime and the legs are about 2.5 inches. The pictures make it look reddish brown but when I look at it its black and white striped legs with a grey abdomen.

Simply amazing...
