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.

Interesting spider and a very speciell net construction.
Yes, it would be cool to see that zig-zag being made!
A web with a view. 🙂
Yes! We should all be so fortunate 😁
Another great set of images!
The lapsed time adds variety and interest.
Thanks, Paz! It was kind of cool to find an insect in the same spot over a whole month. I was back there this past Sunday and saw only a shred of the web, no spider in sight.
