Black and Yellow Garden Spider

Black and Yellow Garden Spider, Over Time

I first saw this Black and Yellow Garden Spider on August 16th. I actually noticed the zig-zag stabilimentum first.

His web was hanging out over a pond, suspended between some shrubs and grass.

I passed the same spot about 45 minutes after the first image; it had clouded over changing the look of the water but the spider hadn’t moved.

On September 6th the spider in the same spot, and this time with a dragonfly for lunch.

The last time I visited this location, September 13, the spider was still there. His web was showing some signs of wear, and he had something wrapped up in a sack.
