Garden Spider

This female banded garden spider is sitting pretty and ready for her closeup as she hangs suspended in her usual upside down position, catching some rays on a fine day. The scientific name of this arachnid is Argiope trifasciata, and is identified by its long black legs, its white, black and yellow striped abdomen, and its spiral-shaped web. She didn't seem to mind at all my hanging out with her to make a few shots.
