Summary Author: John Blodgett   

Shown above is what I believe is the web of the spiny backed, orb weaver spider. I noticed it beneath a white pine tree and used my iPhone 7 to take this picture on the morning of August 22, 2022. The overall web is over 12 inches (30 cm) across, and the outer diameter of the tighter weave is about 8 inches (20 cm). This spider ranges far and wide across the U.S. and tends to construct its web in shrubby garden areas as well as the edge of woodland
