Actually these spiders seem to be everywhere right now. I’m fascinated by the size of their webs. They not only can span distances of many feet but they also have depth, with multiple layers.

I took these first two images from underneath the web. The larger spider is the female (about 2 inches / 5 cm across). I don’t know if the two smaller ones are both Orb Weaver males or intruders. The webs also catch small debris that happens to be floating by.

This last image was from further down the path. The overall structure of the web appears random, probably better to ensnare unsuspecting lunch.
